Are you looking for an exercise class, but the usual active class is not suitable. Then why not try an EXTEND Exercise class?
EXTEND Exercise has many teachers who hold classes throughout the UK, in a number of settings such as NHS/PCT hospitals, nursing homes, private residential homes, sheltered housing accommodation, village halls, sports clubs, day centres, special needs clubs and community centres, etc.
EXTEND Exercise classes are growing in popularity throughout the UK, particularly as people are now living longer and want to maintain a good level of personal fitness well into their later years. EXTEND Exercise is an excellent choice of affordable exercise for people with a disability and the older person to challenge their fitness levels, from the very active to the not so active.
Whether you are recently retired or determined to improve your fitness level, EXTEND Exercise can help you to acheive this. EXTEND Exercise classes will always contain 20 minutes of seated exercise, but do not be discouraged as seated exercises can be very active. You will be very surprised at just how much active exercise can be performed whilst sitting in a chair.
Our qualified EXTEND Exercise teachers are trained in a unique way to make exercise fun but at the same time safe. Therefore, reducing the symptoms of age related conditions and improving mobility for those who have disabilities.
Regular weekly classes are a great way of making new friends and are mostly held during the day. The sessions usually last for one hour with a small interval for tea/coffee and a chat. A Safe to Exercise questionaire will need to be completed before joining a class and some teachers may charge a weekly class fee.
