Helping older people to exercise

For older people, it’s important to keep moving to stay healthy and fit. To help them do so, sports club Only Friends runs Older Friends, a project to encourage elderly people to engage in sports. In terms of length, intensity and exercise, these classes are fully customised. Older people are invited to come and do sports at the modern Friendship Sports Centre in Amsterdam every Friday morning.

ABN AMRO Foundation regularly helps at classes. Our colleagues join in and play an important part by motivating these older people and getting them moving. We offer help whenever Older Friends needs us, making sure we’re truly supportive and are always ready to lend a hand.
