Get out and enjoy your golden years in the Grand Canyon State

After getting to know our New-to-Medicare community, specifically those who recently turned or will turn 65, we understand the desire of Phoenix residents to maintain an active lifestyle. Age should not hinder engaging in physical activities and outdoor hobbies. Thus, we have compiled thirteen of the best ways to stay active in Arizona, with the aim of living your best life.

Pickleball

Pickleball has gained immense popularity across the country as it offers people of all ages an opportunity to stay fit and socialize with new individuals. Whether you're an experienced player or a beginner,

Seidwinder Pickleball, aka Dink Positive,

is an excellent choice to begin your pickleball journey. They provide comprehensive lessons and guidance to help you start playing your new favorite sport.

Birdwatching

Phoenix boasts of exceptional weather, which is great not only for its inhabitants but also for the region's biodiversity. With a higher probability of sighting various bird species, we offer more birding opportunities than several other regions across the nation. Birdwatching is a budget-friendly hobby, and the

Maricopa Audubon Society website

provides a comprehensive guide on birds sighted in Arizona, recommended tours, and trails for the optimal birding experience.

Golf

Golfing is a traditional pastime that particularly appeals to recent retirees seeking to fill their leisure time. As a beginner, it is advisable to try out a driving range or a public course before purchasing a full membership. Greater Phoenix offers several excellent golf courses, but we recommend

Grayhawk Golf Club

in Scottsdale due to its remarkable facilities and professional instructors, making it an ideal spot to improve your game.

Bike Rentals

You can spend a day renting bicycles and experiencing your home through a new and exciting lens.

Cactus Adventures

offers a variety of rentals and guided tours through the mountains if you’re looking for a thrill.

Going to the Gym

Don't let age be a hindrance to your gym experience; after all, it has never stopped you before. Phoenix has numerous Silver Sneakers programs designed to bring seniors together and promote an active lifestyle. We want to shine the spotlight on

FLC Fitness

Center

for its exceptional Silver Sneakers program, which might be a part of your Medicare Advantage plan. To verify if your plan covers this benefit, check with your plan provider or contact one of our Medicare experts at Fair Square.

Physical Therapy

Regardless of your age-related injury or illness, you should still enjoy the best aspects of living in this beautiful city without feeling weak or vulnerable. Suppose you have a physical ailment hindering you from resuming your activities or want to engage in personalized strength and balance training. In that case, physical therapy might be an excellent choice for you. Phoenix has several reliable physical therapy clinics, but we want to bring attention to

OSR Physical

Therapy

, which has been serving the community for over 20 years, offering exceptional services.

Yoga

Yoga offers an excellent means to enhance your balance, flexibility, and mental well-being. Your age shouldn't prevent you from exploring new possibilities. Our friends at

Desert Breeze Yoga

conduct chair yoga classes, which are ideal for a full-body workout, even if you have limited mobility. You can still break a sweat and enjoy the benefits of yoga.

Kayaking

Another way to enjoy low-impact exercise for those who want to get out on the water and go kayaking. The Jacksonville Kayak Company has over 20 years of experience at Amelia Island. They offer rentals and tours up the creek at Amelia Island and in the city of Jacksonville with varying levels of intensity so you can find what’s right for you. 

Tennis

For many, tennis is considered the sport of a lifetime. Arizona has some of the country’s best places to play, and Phoenix is no exception. One of our favorite clubs is the

Ahwatukee Community Center

, which also boasts a swimming center if you'd like to cool off after playing.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an excellent means of attaining tranquility while also improving your core strength and balance.

DMA Tai Chi Fitness & Wellness

provides diverse course options suitable for individuals at various mobility and proficiency levels. Engaging in low-impact martial arts can be an exciting method to step out of your comfort zone and remain active.

Swimming

There are plenty of opportunities to swim in Phoenix.

Ability 360

has you covered with senior fitness classes both in and outside the pool. Check out their website for all they have to offer.

Walking Tours

If you're looking for a new way to explore parts of the area, you can check out some of the walking tours via

Frommer’s

. Being more intentional with a walking tour can help bring a new perspective on familiar ground.

Get Involved with Your Community

Getting active can mean exercise; it could also mean being an active member of your community. For a list of great events for seniors, the

City of Phoenix website

can keep you updated. This is a great way to prioritize the health and well-being of you and your neighbors in Phoenix.

Conclusion

Phoenix presents an ideal location to cherish your golden years, and to ensure that these years remain the best of your life, it's vital to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Fortunately, residents of Phoenix have access to an array of exceptional options to stay engaged and lively for years to come.
