Eng-Age 50+ Activity Day 2016, helping you stay fitter for longer. This year you can bring a grandchild with you to share the taster sessions on offer.
York’s popular Eng-AGE 50+ Activity Day is returning this year for it’s fifth year for older residents who want to try different fitness activities and find out what activities are available in York. This year you can bring along your Grandkids to take part in a range activities together.
The event takes a friendly and fun approach to exercise and is organised by City of York Council as part of the Eng-AGE programme of activities for those over 50. It is a convenient and low cost opportunity for residents to try a number of different sports and activities all in one day under one roof. Now in its fifth year, the event offers 20 different sessions where individuals can participate in all activities without the need for a friend or partner to come along too, making it a great way to make new friends.
Some of the exciting sessions on offer include 50+ fitness, Nordic Walking, Climbing, Swimming, Gym, Tai Chi, Pilates, Aquafit, Hula Hooping, Futsal and many more.
This year the Eng-AGE 50+ Activity Day is dementia friendly and welcomes residents with dementia. Energise itself has dementia friendly status, with the swimming pool working towards becoming a dementia friendly pool. Eng-AGE fitness instructors and Sport and Active Leisure staff are also dementia trained.
The event costs £5 for the full day or £3 for a half day including a tea or coffee for adults. Grandchildren cost £2.50 for a full day and £1.75 for a half day.
Anyone interested can simply turn up on the day although advanced phone booking is strongly recommended for Pilates, tai chi, climbing, aquafit, gym inductions and swimming lessons, where places are limited.
