Fitness Classes for Older People

Keeping fit is important for our health, no matter how young or old, but as age begins to catch up, hard core exercise typically isn't an option. There are, however, plenty of fitness classes available for the more mature. Some great suggestions are Pilates, Aerobics, Yoga and the Gym. Shown below is more information.

Pilates

This gentle, low-impact exercise method is a great choice if you struggle with back pain or if you're currently unfit. Focusing on strengthening the core, including abdominal and back muscles, it promotes improved posture, circulation, flexibility and balance, and can help to prevent falls and injury. There are classes available at all our centres no matter what your age or level of fitness.

Aerobics

A great option for those who need to improve their cardiovascular fitness, there's an aerobics class for everyone, whether you're a beginner or an exercise fan. Instructors know that warm up and down is important so you'll be led through the class without risking injury, and though classes are usually aimed at one particular level, the movements can be easily adjusted to suit your own ability. As well as traditional aerobics classes, there are step classes, which burn calories more quickly, and aqua aerobics (aquafit), which is ideal for those who are overweight or who have joint problems, since it is low impact.

Aquatots and Aquababies Classes

Swimming Classes for children under 5 are a fun and rewarding experience that helps build the bond between you and your child as they focus on trust.

The first year of a baby's life is crucial in terms of their development, as it is in this period that their brain grows most rapidly. Regular exercise plays a vital role in this, with every movement they make helping to strengthen their brain for new learning.

Baby swimming is completely natural; having spent months surrounded by fluid in the womb, babies have a real affinity with water. Making bath times fun is a great way of getting your baby used to water and building confidence for baby swimming. Gently splash water over his body or lay him on his back and move him gently through the water, with lots of eye contact and smiles.

Why not contact your local Pool for more information?
