The NSW Government has today thrown its support behind an initiative to stage the Biggest Online Seniors Workout.
Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee said the free 30 minute workout will be live streamed across a number of online video platforms on April 29 at 11am.
“I know speaking to many seniors it has been a tough ask to stop their normal day-to-day routines which had been keeping them socially active,” Mr Lee said.
“The NSW Government is keen to promote anything that will help them to keep in touch with the community while staying safe indoors.
“I’m encouraging all NSW seniors to get online and get physical on April 29 so we can promote fitness and health while staying home to keep safe from COVID-19.”
NSW Seniors Card partner and Active Seniors Health Centre owner Taylor Harrison will be hosting the Biggest Online Seniors Workout.
“We are championing health for our seniors more than ever in these unprecedented times to help them maintain balance, strength and flexibility while self-isolating,” Dr Harrison said.
“Our 30 minute workout on April 29 will be conducted by our professional team and streamed on various platforms including YouTube Live, Facebook Live, and Zoom. This is fun and free, so tell all your older friends and family members to get involved.”
