For Retirees and people over 60 regular long walking helps some as in the 10,000 Steps a day movement . So you would be walking for one to two hours a day five days a week weather allowing . Walking clubs are out there a problem - safely So they have walking clubs who pick scenic safe walking trails in parks but the crime rate cannot be ignored in some lands . Security is paramount in those areas . Its outdoor gyms in the Covid 19 era or indoor well ventilated gyms with tinted windows part open and mega hepa filters and spacing. Indoor gyms insist on recommended vaccination.
