Exercise is an important element in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We can provide you with all the support you need to ensure that you are are moving more and improving your health.
Exercise has a huge range of benefits, from improving your mood to helping avoid life-limiting conditions. Exercising on a regular basis helps manage your weight, which not only improves your physical appearance, but will help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart attack, strokes and some cancers. It will also help lower your blood cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
Our classes aren’t just for those who want to get fit, if you’re at risk of falls, have been in hospital or bed ridden it’s also a great way to get back into movement. We’ve made sure that some of the excises are chair based to accommodate all. As a result, you’ll develop stronger bones, muscles and joints, you’ll be stable on your feet whilst also lower your risk of developing osteoporosis. The endorphins from exercise will give you more energy, help you sleep better, make you feel happier and more relaxed.
