International Health Insurance News: Group exercise 'more fun'

Expatriate health insurance customers might want to research exercise classes in their local area.

According to Vicky Johnston, chartered physiotherapist from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, older people should look in local newspapers and notice boards to see if there are any exercise classes available near them.

She added that working out with other people is likely to make things it more fun and will help them to stop the reduction in muscle that comes with age.

Ms Johnston added: "At home, there are many ways to add resistance exercises to your day without specialist equipment.

"Some examples include sit to stand from a chair, and when sitting down again, do this in a controlled way and avoid flopping back into the seat."

Expatriates could also find that exercise classes are a good way to meet people in their new country.
