It is based on the ThinkingFit model which comes from a prolonged research done in the UK.


NTCC-R T Nagar offers wide range of activities including physical, cognitive and social activities. All members are assessed initially – the assessment decides the type of activities they can do and helps track their improvement. These tests are repeated every three months to follow up and check on the improvement in the members in a scientific manner.

Benefits of this Active Ageing program include significant decrease in blood glucose level, stabilised blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and considerable improvement in cognitive skills. Overall, members have reported significant improvement in their quality of life and reduction in various cardiovascular risk factors.
