At least that is the testament of a trio of Green Island nonagenarians who get joy and confidence from their weekly exercise session.
Zona Fleury (95), Reina Guise (93) and Miriam Jarvis (93) say they look forward to the Steady As You Go classes at St Margaret’s Church each Monday.
They also particularly enjoy the post-workout chat and coffee at the cafe across the road.
Mrs Fleury has been attending the class since it first started in 2010.
"We like to be able to do some exercise."
The class was conscious of safety and makes sure no pressure was placed on members to push themselves, she said.
"It’s really light exercise. If we aren’t able to do something then we just won’t do it."
Mrs Jarvis said the class was a good and friendly community.
"Everyone is looking after you to make sure you’re OK."
The classes, which are specifically designed for elderly exercisers, attract about 20 people each week.
They focus on light exercises that help with balance, along with having fun together.
The club is run by Sadie Murphy, who said she wanted a place for the elderly community of Green Island to keep healthy and socialise.
Mrs Fleury and Mrs Jarvis, who have lived in Green Island all their lives, said they used to enjoy playing tennis and basketball and they liked to keep active in their later years.
She wanted to encourage more people her age to exercise regularly, Mrs Fleury said.
"If you don’t come for a week then you feel it next time."
