Getting older hasn’t stopped Heraldo from wanting to be active, but his heart condition and prostate cancer made things more complex. He’s found that some things that were never particularly difficult in the past are now nearly impossible, including some of the exercises he used to do before. By trying a new activity, he found something he enjoys – and something that works out muscles he didn’t even know he had.
How Heraldo Gets Moving
Heraldo has found that Pilates classes help strengthen him, while also being an activity he’s able to do. He also works moving more into his daily routine, walking, cycling, and chatting with the people he meets along the way.
Since we last spoke to Heraldo, he has been doing workouts at home, going for walks with a friend, cycling to the gym now and then, and also cycling to local shops. He relishes the level of independence being active gives him. In fact, he’s been able to return to watching Arsenal play at home and enjoys the chance to “mingle with the other Gooner faithful.”
