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.

Resistance Training


The idea of lifting weights in your later life might seem preposterous, but research suggests resistance training can provide major benefits for mature folk. With improved muscle tone comes greater strength and stability, which can help to prevent falls and reduce the onset of age-related muscle decline, osteoporosis and arthritis. From lifting lighter weights to using resistance bands, it's important to start gently and take proper advice or instruction in order to avoid injury.

Your local sports centre will be able to provide a personalised plan to start you off, just book yourself in for an induction (gym appointment).

There are many styles of yoga, from the gentle vinyasa, which is perfect for beginners, to the more physically demanding ashtanga. All forms are designed to improve strength and flexibility, and by focusing on the coordination of breathing with movement, you'll develop better control of both body and mind. To get the most out of it, you'll need to keep it up for a sustained period, but it is a fabulous way to condition your body whilst also relieving stress and improving your mood. We have a number of different forms available at our centres including Yogalates.
