STRONGER FOR LONGER CLASS
ALL OUR CLASSES ARE BEING RUN ONLINE FOR THE MOMENT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS. SEE BELOW FOR THE TIMETABLE.
Our Stronger For Longer class is aimed over 50s ish!. We lose 5% of our muscle strength every decade and this is known as sarcopaenia. Most people realise that we lose bone strength but the loss of muscle strength is less known but may be as important. Keeping up your muscle strength is important for mobility and is particularly helpful for those with arthritis. This class also gives you a chance to exercise with people of a similar age which our attendees say is important to them.
The class lasts one hour and you can join it any week. It comprises of circuit training spending a couple of minutes at each task and then moving on to the next one. It involves some weight-lifting of small to medium weight and other exercises such as lunges and balance exercises. All the exercises are done under the supervision of a chartered physiotherapist who will advise on the correct weights and techniques and will be able to take into consideration any muscle, bone or joint complaints that you may have. We have a maximum of seven in each class to ensure close supervision.
On Fridays, we have a STRONGER FOR LONGER GOLF class which is specifically for golfers aimed at strengthening all the muscles that are important for the golf swing. It will also help your balance and flexibility.
