ROLL BACK THE CLOCK
What is Roll Back the Clock?
Roll Back the Clock aims to boost physical activity rates among Australians aged 65 and over through bowls, light exercise and education.
Health-related reasons (including physical and mental health as well as disability or poor health or injury) are the main barriers for older Australians participating in sport or physical activities.
It will get you out and about, doing fun activities, learning about good health and socialising with like-minded people. It is based around the government initiative of “Finding your 30” minutes of activity on at least 3 to 4 days each week.
Sessions will be adapted for individuals and benefits include flexibility, muscular endurance and strength and in some instances aerobic/cardiovascular exercise.
Currently, only 25 percent of Australians over 65 meet the Department of Health physical activity guidelines of 30 minutes of activity per day.
