Over 60s Strength and Balance Classes

Home » News » Strength & Balance
Falls Prevention Class

Over 60s Strength & Balance Classes resume, commencing at 10am, Wednesday 14th September at Tattenhall Recreation Club.

A weekly class developed from the NHS Falls Prevention Programme is now in its eighth year with Advanced Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer, Dave Knott of Deva Fitness.

Falls can destroy confidence, increase isolation and reduce independence, with around 1 in 10 of older people who fall becoming afraid to leave their homes in case they fall again.

After a fall, an older person has a 50 per cent probability of having their mobility seriously impaired.

However, the good news is that a tailored exercise programme can reduce falls by as much as 54 per cent (AgeUK) and our classes have a proven record of improving the all round fitness of participants.

This class aims to improve strength, balance, co-ordination, mobility, hand eye co-ordination and dexterity.

Please contact Dave on 01829 770327 or email davejknott@gmail.com for more information and to book your place.
