Strength and Balance – Fit 4 Life

Back to Activities

A class for over 50s that improves balance, strength and mobility, reducing the risk of falls.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • meeting other people facing similar challenges helps you feel less alone;
  • gentle movement will help you re-connect with your body;
  • led by trained instructors, your confidence and mobility will gradually improve.


What to expect

Led by the friendly and energetic Vanessa, Strength & Balance classes are a mixture of seated and standing exercises that are aimed at improving confidence, balance and mobility if you’ve had a fall or are at risk of falling (more information about Falls Prevention here). Every exercise can be modified to suit all abilities.

Find out the dates/times for classes by phoning or emailing Vanessa. Classes last for an hour.

More information
