More Movement for the Elderly this Friday at I & I Fitness

GREAT BAY(DCOMM):--- More Movement for the Elderly, will take place on Friday, April 28.

Senior citizens are invited to I & I Fitness which is located on Welfare road (behind the I-Store in Cole Bay) for More Movement for the Elderly Fitness.

To stay healthy or to improve health, older adults need to do two types of physical activity each week: aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity.

Older adults aged 60 or older, who are generally fit and have no health conditions that limit their mobility, should try to be active daily.

The activity has been organized and coordinated over a one-year period by Collective Prevention Services (CPS), a department from the Sint Maarten Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, the White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation (WYCCF), Windward Islands Physical Therapist Association (WIPTA) and I&I Fitness.

The Friday activity is being coordinated by I & I Fitness from 3.00PM to 3.45PM at the aforementioned address.

It's recommended that adults aged 60 or older do at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity such as cycling or fast walking every week, and muscle-strengthening activities that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms).

Some activity, however light, is better for your health than none at all.

Curaçao North Sea Jazz 2017 Cancelled.

The Curaçao North Sea Jazz will not take place in 2017 after all. This has been decided, with a heavy heart, by Fundashon Bon Intenshon and Mojo Concerts. After a renewed effort, sparing no trouble or expense, to realize a high-quality program, it turned out that no main acts were available for the festival weekend.

Late last year, FBI and Mojo decided to cancel the 2017 edition of the festival for the same reason. Shortly thereafter and in cooperation with a number of local stakeholders, it was agreed to try again. Since then the organization has, behind the screens, made every effort but, unfortunately, without the desired result.

In balancing both private and public interests, Fundashon Bon Intenshon aspires to a consistent long-term vision of entertainment on the international top level. In this respect it is inevitable, in the event of a limited availability of acts, to choose to cancel the festival. It is essential to guarantee the reputation of the event for both the country Curaçao and abroad.

After having considered all options there is, also in view of the contribution from Community funds, no other option for the organization but to put the festival on hold this year and fully focus on the 2018 edition.

Exercise is the Key to Healthy Aging.

For those 60+, your current physical condition can benefit from exercise. Join the More Movement for the Elderly by participating in the next activity on Saturday, April 15 at the St. Martin’s Home (St. John’s Estate) from 10.30AM to 12.00PM. This activity is being given by the White & Yellow Cross Care Foundation. For more information, call Collective Prevention Services at 542-3003 or 542-2078.
