Age Well Exercise

Keeping you active and healthy as you age

Do you find that those daily tasks you used to take for granted are getting harder? Things like:

  • Shopping
  • Gardening
  • Getting up out of bed or a chair
  • Getting on or off the bus
  • Climbing the stairs
  • Housework
  • Getting washed and dressed

Perhaps you’ve already had a fall or feel unsteady on your feet.

  • Keeping active is key to staying fit, mobile and independent as you get older.
  • Our Age Well classes offer gentle, easy exercises to improve stability, balance, coordination and strength to reduce your risk of falling.
  • Our Age Well Exercise classes are also ideal if you’ve already had a fall.
  • Being able to keep doing those everyday tasks and chores makes a huge difference to keeping your independence and confidence in later life.

Our fully qualified instructors are all trained to a nationally recognised standard.

A fall can be serious at any age, but as we get older, the risk of injury increases, as does recovery time. Our specially designed exercises will help you:

  • Reduce your risk of falling
  • Strengthen your muscles and bones
  • Improve your balance and coordination
  • Help you carry out everyday tasks more easily
  • Increase your confidence and mobility
  • The classes are also a great place to meet new people!

After 12 weeks of attending the hour long weekly sessions and practising once a week at home you will find everyday tasks getting much easier and your confidence levels will improve.

There is an opportunity for tea & a chat at the end of the class and a chance to find out what other services in Halton are available.
