Uncharted Waters.

Wow! The world has just turned upside down! Almost no-one who will be reading this will ever have experienced anything remotely like this. Our website promotes health in later life through strength and fitness. The people we have met and interviewed over the years are already living a life that goes against conventional wisdom about being older - so they are thinking outside the box in the first place. We know therefore that all SGSC athletes will take on this challenge as imaginatively as they approach life in general.

We ourselves are sticking to a daily routine which involves running outside and doing strength work in the house. We are also making sure we do plenty of stretching to keep ourselves as supple as possible. It seems to us that regularity is the key.  

We realise more than ever how lucky we usually are to have so much freedom to live, train and do the sports that we love. In the future when all this is over, on days when we don’t want to push ourselves so hard we will be aware of how fortunate we are to have that choice.

Maybe the lock-down will even bring new people to experience the benefits of exercise and hopefully they will continue the habit once this crisis is passed.
 
Stay strong, stay healthy. Life’s a Game - Keep Playing!

OK, you're reading this, so you're probably getting older - whatever that means. At Silver Grey Sports Club, we don't tend to use the words old or older as we feel that there is a subjective judgement in deciding what is or is not old - and generally it's not a positive one. We use "past the age of 50"
