8 - PROGRAM / SERVICE / ACTIVITY SUMMARY DESCRIPTION
Adult programs offered by the Cyprus Sport Organization aim to improve adult people’s physical and mental fitness, enhance physical appearance, reduce older people stress levels and of course improve each participant’s psychological and social status.
These programs are delivered by specialised personnel in order to offer exactly what they are designed for. These programs function all year round in all regions of the island. Hundreds of participants attend these courses which mainly offer:
-Physical activity via aerobic classes, sport games and outdoor activities
Instructors are responsible to design and execute classes which will enhance participants’ physical condition
-Cognitive/mental function training via activity classes
Through execution, participants are ‘’forced’’ to use mental activity in order to solve specific issues (ex. In an obstacle training course)
-Reduction of stress level and socialization
The nature of classes allows participants to discuss and solve several issues among them thus strengthening the relationship among peers or even strengthening the participant-instructor link. This is to the benefit of improving social relation and of course relieving stress.
