Set partly to music, this class is suitable for the slightly more active older adult who wishes to maintain or improve their current fitness level in a fun and safe way. 

Our instructor Chris has over 20 years’ experience teaching older adults as well as a Level 4 qualification from the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR) in cardio rehab and postural stability. 

This class uses evidence-based exercises and the latest research into ageing to focus on Cardiovascular disease prevention - benefitting both physical and mental health.  

As well as a warm-up, including stretches, this class covers all aspects of physical fitness including balance, co-ordination, resistance and cardiovascular fitness.  

Chris provides options on how to reduce or increase the exercise intensity during the sessions, making the class suitable for most ability levels.
