Regular physical activity in later life is important for so many reasons – not only will your health improve, but you’ll also meet new people. There’s something to suit everyone.

Why is keeping fit in later life so beneficial?

Here are just some of the benefits of physical activity:

Helps you to maintain a healthy weight
Reduce your risk of falls by strengthening your muscles
It is linked to supporting your thinking skills
Boost your mood and energy levels(exercise releases endorphins)
It’s social – joining a sports team or a class can help you to make friends
If you haven’t exercised in a while, don’t worry. Our classes and clubs focus on gentle exercise to help you to regain your fitness at your own pace. If you’re used to regular physical activity, exercises can be tailored to be more strenuous.
