Active Ageing Class

It is well documented that maintaining exercise and activity levels is crucial to help people stay independent and in good health as they age. Our Active Ageing classes, are specifically targeted at older men and ladies who are pro-active about taking care of their bodies and staying physically well.

Who is the Active Ageing Class for? 

Active Ageing is ideal for:

  • Men or ladies over 60, who want to exercise in a supportive and comfortable environment 
  • People who want to maintain or improve their muscle strength, flexibility, balance or fitness levels
  • Those who may have had hip or knee surgery and want to do some regular, supervised exercise as part of their rehabilitation 
  • Those waiting for surgery who want to try and improve their potential once they have surgery
  • People with conditions such as osteoarthritis or osteoporosis, for whom exercise is a highly effective treatment
  • Those who want to feel more confident exercising
  • Active individuals who want to keep enjoying their physical capabilities! 

What does an Active Ageing Class involve? 

The Active Ageing Class is a weekly, supervised, small group exercise programme held at goPhysio in Chandlers Ford. The weekly Active Ageing Class consists of:

  • A gentle warm up and 50 minutes of a circuit based exercise class led by one of our Physiotherapists or Sports and Rehabilitation Therapists
  • A range of exercises designed to improve your fitness, strength, flexibility, mobility, posture and balance
  • Education and advice to help you learn more about exercising as you age 

There is a maximum of 6 people per session, so that the sessions are well supervised and you can have the benefit of being both well supported and progressed and enjoying exercising with other people. The sessions are fun and social! 

It may sound a little daunting if you haven't exercised in a while or aren't used to exercising, but don't worry! There isn't any running around, heavy weights or you won't be asked to do anything you aren't comfortable doing. It really does start gently, so we can get to know you and you can gain confidence exercising. You'll be surprised at what you can do in time!  

When is Active Ageing? 

The weekly class is held every Wednesday from 11am - 12pm.
