For Henry Morrell, a good day starts with a morning swim in The Mayflower’s pool. For Lawrie Hall, finding inner peace in yoga class is the best way to unwind. And for Martha Williamson, seizing the day means heading down to the Fitness Center for a workout that’s just the right amount of challenging.
No matter what “fitness” means to you, studies show that finding ways to move more is a cornerstone of lifelong well-being. The list of benefits associated with the expert-recommended 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week is seemingly boundless: improved mental clarity; lower blood pressure; better mood; protection from diabetes, stroke, arthritis, dementia, and mental illness; and longer life – to name just a few.
Because of its wide-ranging therapeutic effects, fitness plays a key role in The Mayflower’s holistic approach to well-being. Just ask resident Lawrie Hall, who says she “fell in love” with the community’s vibrant atmosphere from the very beginning: “From the walking trails to the Fitness Center to the yoga classes, the exercise options here are absolutely astonishing. There’s vitality all around you.”
