Why should you take part
It is an important part of the ageing process to try and stay as fit, strong and healthy as you can, and the Chief Medical Officer recommends that adults and older adults do 2.5 hours physical activity each week, as well as performing exercise that improves strength and balance on two days of the week (UK Chief Medical Officers’ Guidelines 2011).
These low to moderate intensity easymovers classes therefore provide the ideal opportunity for participants to develop increased flexibility, strength and balance, which all help to promote prolonged independence.
Our easymovers classes are suitable for people looking to start taking part in physical activity for the first time in a while, recovering from an injury, suffering with a long-term illness, health problem or impairment, or looking to develop some strength and balance to reduce their risks of falling.
Our qualified instructors will tailor the content of these sessions to meet the needs of all participants attending so come along and see if it suits you.
