Exercise for seniors

The sports services organise weekly exercise groups for seniors as well as sports and exercise courses and events aimed at seniors.

For seniors, we also offer free exercise sessions, for example in Louhenpuisto, and a shopping centre walk in Iso Kristiina.

You can also take part in the exercise session with an accessory such as a walker. The exercise session is free of charge and does not require advance registration.  The exercise session takes place outside in Louhenpuisto.
