Are you over 55 and living in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown? If so why not come along and bring a buddy to a FREE Active Exercise session in the dlr Leisure centres where you can try new activities and have fun.
During European Week of Sport in September, dlr Leisure are teaming up with DLR Sports Partnership and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council to organise open activity mornings (10am to 12pm) in the four public leisure centres. Anyone in the County over the age of 55 is invited to come along to one of these fun mornings in Loughlinstown (24th Sept.), Meadowbrook (25th Sept.), Monkstown (26th Sept.) and Ballyogan (27th Sept.).
The focus of the sessions will be on activities and light exercises that promote physical activity, mobility and strength based movements. Activities will include Introduction to the Gym, Exercise to Music, Go for Life Games and other fun tasters. Dedicated members of staff will also be on hand to offer information and advice on appropriate exercise for you.
If you want to get more active on a daily basis, then why not take part in a weekly activity session run by dlr Leisure. This session takes place in each of the four public leisure facilities in Ballyogan, Meadowbrook, Loughlinstown and Monkstown.
These older adult activity programmes have been taking place successfully in the dlr Leisure centres for the past 10 years and have re-introduced hundreds of people to an active and healthy lifestyle. A key to its success has been the social aspect of the sessions where you can make new friends as well as have fun in a group activity.
