2 July 2018 – It’s not always easy to stay active in the cooler months, but winter time is precisely when we should keep moving.
Regular exercise is good for us. It helps improve circulation, ease aching joints and relieve cold and numb legs and feet. It can also help with mobility and balance so it’s easier to get around — and it’s good for mental wellbeing too.
Even on the dullest day, home exercise equipment lets you stay active without having to brave the harsh elements. And the good news is, all our exercise equipment at Life Unlimited (now known as Your Way | Kia Roha) Store is compact, easy-to-use and very affordable – so there’s no excuse not to keep active this winter. Just have a chat with your doctor or other healthcare professional first.
