As my town is being turned into a cycle town I'm thinking of getting a second hand bicycle any advice or tips? Or am I being plain daft starting again in my 50s?

Health and fitness bank accounts

This has nothing to do with money, it is just the fact that everything you do on a daily basis has either a positive or a negative affect on your health. To keep your health and fitness bank account in the black you need to make more healthy deposits than unhealthy withdrawals.

Any runners in Colchester interested in starting a running group.

Just 6 years ago I was fit and light enough to run the London marathon but sadly over the last few years the weight piled on and the fitness waned. Newly retired I now have time to get back in shape and it would be great to go jogging (slowly at first ) with anyone who is in the Colchester area.

I want something that makes me get up and move about. I've been looking at these activity trackers but they track too many activities for what I need. Does anyone use one of these and how do you find it? I want something to remind me to move, track my sleep pattern, count my walking steps and monitor my heart health. I don't need swimming, running, cycling, jogging or gym activities.

Boxing

I took up boxing in my mid 50's and have to say it is the best form of exercise i have ever done, originally striated off with a personal trainer who had been a semi professional boxer , but after 18 months he went off to do teacher training. Rather than give up I bought a heavy duty punch bag and some exercise matting. My routine is 3 x a week ,for 45minutes to an hour starting with skipping, then a punch bag routine that is 10 rounds each least 3 minutes with a 30 second rest. I follow this with some weights and then cooling down exercises. I also fall a youtube and twitter page of a site called Sneakpunch which i would highly recommend Cornelius Carr is excellent at providing and giving advice/guidance. The great think about boxing is that it is suitable for all and you can do it aye your own pace....give it a go you will be really amazed at how much you will enjoy it.

Walking and earning whilst keeping fit in Northamptonshire

I run my own small leaflet distribution business in Rushden Northamptonshire and find that "us" silversurfers make ideal delivery people, maybe you could run an article on the subject, I could maybe add some editorial. I myself always try to take on silversurfers as they are perfect for the job, not only would they earn a little extra cash they can keep fit and they can socialize with people on their rounds, work when they wish, within reason, and feel valued once again working part time in the community whilst getting daily exercise. My website is: www.dsleafletdeliverycompany.co.uk

I have been following this forum for some time but have never contributed (technophobia or laziness, you decide). I am fed up of the average spin class and swimming session. I love walking but cant drive so its hard to venture to far beyond the horizon. I cant afford sailing, like golf but its not challenging enough, and far beyond it when it comes to team sports. Any suggestions to new activities would be brilliant and welcomed with open arms. (please note that i’m base in the UK) TheCrep
