Annually the ACLO organizes two weeks that are completely dedicated to Healthy Ageing: the Healthweeks. During this week we will pay attention to various aspects of a healthy lifestyle, ranging from nutrition, sports and exercise to mental health. During the Healthweek you can get a full healthcheck, have a massage, visit healthy lifestyle workshops, take a spinning class with a heart rate monitor and much more! All activities are for free. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an ACLO member or not: everyone is welcome at this event!
During the Healthweek you can have your health checked daily between 16:00 and 19:00 at the Koos Duppenhal. Each day there are several rounds, so you can choose which one suits your schedule best. Your BMI, body fat percentage, blood pressure, pinch force, lung capacity, flexibility and endurance will be measured. After the tests a number of experts from the University Medical Center Groningen are ready to give you personal advice on how to further improve your health. Overall, the healthchecks take about 45 minutes. Because you’ll move a lot during the measurements it is recommended to put on sportswear. You will get your results on paper, so later on you can track how your health has changed. Sign up for the healthchecks here.
We organize workshops for everyone who wants to learn more about a healthy lifestyle. The workshops take place in the Sportsbar’s Lunchroom or in the Sports Centre meeting room. Look at the image above for the schedule of the workshops.
