Stay healthy in nature
15 people from Nyborg, ages 55-75 years, meet once a week out in nature. They know that it’s healthy for their bodies, minds and souls to get exercise, which is why they have signed up for a 12-week program arranged by NGIF’s (Nyborg Gymnastics and Sports Association) Gymnastics and Athletics in collaboration with the Museums of Eastern Funen.
“Keep your brain and body in shape” is a training program that takes place entirely in nature and which consists of activities that benefit both body and brain. Along with Nicolai Knudsen and Tue Skovgård Larsen from the Museums of Eastern Funen, 15-20 older people are doing physical activities that introduce them to new ways to experience nature, challenge their motor skills, their senses, and their physical and mental capabilities, while, at the same time, they gain insight into the culture of medieval combat and play.
