Free Strength and Balance Training Programme

About the Course

Our gentle exercise programme is suitable for anyone over 65, who is looking to improve strength, balance and mobility.

You will first attend an initial assessment with one of our qualified Health & Wellbeing Coaches before joining a class. You will then work with them to learn exercises that will help you feel more stable.

The programme lasts for 26 weeks and are held once a week for 60 minutes.

The simple exercises are designed for older adults and are adaptable to match all abilities and circumstances. Most of them can be done seated if required.
