How to trick your mind that you are not exercising! 

Ok as an older adult I can now say this, physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health and do it regularly. Exercise can prevent or delay many health problems documented that come with age.
Activities require muscle use, and the more you use them it helps your muscles grow stronger. The less you use them you struggle to keep doing your day-to-day activities and become dependent on others.

The appeal of going for a jog, or my enjoyment of putting on the gear to go mountain biking is wavering. But I so enjoy being outdoors and know the importance of being active is the reason kick bike or adult scootering appeals to me.

Adults over 50 need to:

  • At least do 150 minutes a week (for example, 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week) of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking, or they need 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity activity such as hiking, jogging, or running.
  • At least 2 days a week of activities that strengthen muscles.
  • Activities to improve balance such as standing on one foot about 3 days a week.

A video from Lifeliberated regarding  physical health and wellbeing by fitness instructor Owain Williams covers issue and impact of frailty and the impact of poor balance and consequences of falls

According to https://www.cdc.gov. we need to do aerobic activity, muscle strengthening and balance activities and all this is required when you scooter. The kick bike helps with the low impact on joints and hips and help get you out in an environment that makes it not feel like exercise.
