I've enjoyed SUP in Florida, and now I've begun paddling in Lake Huron. My son and daughter-in-law have paddleboards too, so we've got plans to get together and paddle in the lake. I'm 69, and enjoy being on the water and being active.
Walking daily....
I am 81 years old and my wife and I walk an hour a day. And we also have a set of small weights(5 lbs each for my wife...and 15 lbs each for me) which we leave by our chairs in front of the TV. We do squats and curls and presses while we watch the news each day. And we eat a healthy diet. It works for us...we enjoy good health
I take my workouts outdoors when possible. Get out on my bike as much as I can. Paddle board on the weekends
Eat Healthy, get plenty of rest, try to walk a bit each day & take medications that my doctors prescribe regularly & make sure all my doctors know which prescription & OTC medications I am taking.
Hiking Gros Morne Mountain!

Great way to keep in shape and regularly communicate as we live in 3 different cities in Ontario.
we stay healthy with lots of family walks around the neighborhood and the trails
I stay healthy by going to fitness classes at various nearby community centres in my town. There are plenty of classes to choose from such as Aquafit, Dancercize, and Body Blast workouts. The cost of membership is very reasonable and I've met some great people there too. Another physical activity I do regularly is walk the dog with my husband after dinner. It is especially nice on these pleasant summer evenings to get out and enjoy our local parks.
I play dodgeball and badminton regularly, and do lots of walking.
Everyday I do cardio or strength training. After my husband gets off work we go to our favourite trail to walk.
