Walking is a great exercise. According to recent studies "...physical activity was the number one contributor to longevity, adding extra years to your life—even if you don’t start exercising until your senior years. But getting active is not just about adding years to your life, it’s about adding life to your years. You’ll not only look better when you exercise, you’ll feel sharper, more energetic, and experience a greater sense of well-being". https://www.helpguide.org/articles/healthy-living/exercise-and-fitness-as-you-age.htm
Whangarei is (arguably) uniquely favoured in the number of beautiful walks that are available within minutes of the CBD.
At Whangarei Aquatic Centre we are all about health and wellbeing - join us (no charge) on Mondays at 12:15 for a 35 - 45 minute walk to do yourself some good while enjoying our great scenery. Relax in our spa pool or enjoy a healthy lunch at Cascade Cafe afterwards (we will charge for those).
