Expat Health Insurance News: Over 50s 'should try a range of exercises'

There is a wide range of exercise options available for overseas health insurance customers in their 50s who want to remain active.

Lucy Case of The Body Fitness Company urged people of this age group to "try anything and everything that sounds fun" and adjust the amount they do in order to match their fitness level.

Everyday activities such as gardening and walking the dog are "good stuff for the heart, lungs and muscles", she observed, adding cycling can also be beneficial.

Those who opt to attend exercise classes and try fitness workouts such as Zumba should make sure they inform their instructor of their age, so that the teacher can gauge their progress accordingly, Ms Case concluded.

Regular exercise has numerous advantages and professor Tim Oliver of cancer charity Orchid recently explained people who have been diagnosed with the disease can benefit from frequent outdoor walks, which help build up supplies of vitamin D.
