Date Posted: January 19, 2021

How many times have you promised yourself that you’ll focus on your health and fitness in the new year, only to get caught up in old routines and lost motivation? Don’t sweat it, we’ve all been there!

If improving your health and wellness is something you want to accomplish in 2021, then moving to a downsizing community could be the perfect option.

Here’s how you can enjoy a more active lifestyle when you call a downsizing community home:

Luxury fitness facilities on your doorstep

Land lease communities feature a range of luxury health and sporting facilities, making keeping active easy for homeowners. Many downsizing communities offer the following:

  • Indoor pool and spa
  • Gymnasium
  • Wellness centre
  • Sauna
  • Tennis court
  • Bocce or croquet lawn

The best part? All of these great facilities are situated right on your doorstep!

Dedicated wellness teams

Some communities make it extremely easy to enhance your overall wellbeing by having a dedicated wellness team that delivers programs and activities designed to support health and fitness for over 50s.

So, whether your goal is to get taut and toned, reach a certain step count or just have some fun while getting active, there’s something for all wellness goals at a downsizing community.

Community groups

Many downsizing communities have sporting groups to get involved with, such as tennis, lawn bowls, pickle ball, table tennis, pool, croquet and more!

Community sporting groups are a great way to make friends and have fun while getting active, and also provide an opportunity to release your inner competitive spirit!
