I have more choices, so I am choosing to move.
Since my retirement, I have been involved in my community at the West End Senior’s Network and volunteered at various events including the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival. Despite my involvement, my activity level has decreased over the years and I’ve been looking for ways to fill my days. I’ve also been wanting to get more physically active but it’s been difficult to motivate myself especially when the days are dark, cold and rainy.

Small Choice. Big impact.
For researchers working in and with the community, there is nothing better than seeing the impact of our work in the lives of individuals participating in one of our programs.

Don’t You, Forget about These: Strength and Balance Training are part of Physical Activity Recommendations
In a recent publication Canadians were reported to have very low rates of awareness of physical activity guidelines, particularly among older Canadians. Although there are established recommendations for adults to engage in regular physical activity for health benefits, only 37% of Canadians and 36% of Americans are even aware that these guidelines exist. This lack of awareness of recommended physical activity, including strength and balance training, can leave us falling short of our weekly requirements. Knowledge is power – and in this case, muscle power (and strength)!
