What you say is all common sense Wullie - and I do a lot of walking.

But I still think that a small group of like-minded mature individuals can help and motivate each other.

The local council-run facilities are useless. As I said earlier, they seem to think that the over 50s don't work anymore and so they hold their classes during the day.

I'm not into buying fancy gear and hiring a personal trainer.

We've just bought an interactive VR Kinect unit for our son's X-Box 360. There's various exercise game titles avalable. Maybe I should get one !

I might try the boxing one, as long as Mike Tyson isn't on it. I'd hate to lose an ear, virtually !

Do they have darts or snooker ?
