Our Inclusive Fitness classes cater for all abilities and levels of fitness especially for people who may require some additional support.
Our aim is to engage with as many disabled people and carers to help improve, advise and maintain an healthy lifestyle through fun and engaging workouts.
For our disabled customers this is an opportunity to get out of your house and take part in a fun and healthy activity while making new friends.
Our Chair-Based Exercise classes aim to improve flexibility and fitness for people who prefer to remain seated, either on a chair or in a wheelchair. The classes are gentle and are particularly suitable for people who are less able. They offer the opportunity to exercise to music and to improve your limb mobility, muscle strength, co-ordination, balance and range of movement.
Multiple-component exercise programs with a focus on balance retraining and muscle strengthening, ideal for people who may be vulnerable to falls.
