Get Walking in Norwood

ByBrett Pilgrim

Residents of property in Norwood are being encouraged to strap on their walking shoes and take a stroll to improve their health and wellbeing.

New studies published in the USA on November 10 have highlighted the importance of exercise for healthy living and ageing, according to a media release from the American Society for Neuroscience.

Research has found that elderly rats experienced improved movement function following just 12 consecutive days of physical activity. This indicates that exercise could potentially preserve mobility while ageing.

Even low impact exercise has a positive impact, with brain function, memory and body awareness improving through exercise like yoga and walking.

Unfortunately, figures from the Australian Heart Foundation indicate that more than half of Aussie adults are not active enough to gain the health benefits from exercise.

However, the Heart Foundation has coordinated free local walking groups to encourage fun, social and easy ways to stay active.

Norwood residents can join the Adelaide Walkers every Saturday and Sunday morning for an hour long medium pace health and fitness stroll around the city.

For weekday walkers, the Stepney Heart N Sole group meet at Avenues Shopping Centre each Wednesday. Alternatively, you can tag along with the Baby Zoomers, which meets each Tuesday at 9.30 a.m. outside the Norwood Council building.

You can find further information and more available walking groups on the Heart Foundation’s website or from the City of Norwood Payneham and St Peters Council.
