The Forever Active Scheme
The Forever Active sessions are exercise sessions, which are suitable for the over 50 age group as well as for those returning to a more active lifestyle. There are a variety of different sessions on offer, which cater for a wide range of abilities.
It is advised that adults take part in 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise 5 days a week. The health benefits include helping to prevent or manage diabetes, help you to sleep better, helps to increase mobility and muscle strength, helps with osteoporosis, helps to reduce blood pressure, helps with weight loss / maintenance and is an ideal opportunity to meet new friends.
Activities on offer include chair based exercise classes, fitness pilates, aqua aerobics and Thai Chi.
