Over 60's Strength & Balance Classes

Commencing on Wednesday 16th September at 10 am at the Tattenhall Recreation Club.

A weekly class developed from the NHS Falls Prevention Programme is now in its seventh 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 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). This class aims to improve strength, balance, co-ordination, mobility, hand eye co-ordination and dexterity.

Please contact Dave on 01829 770327 to book your place or for more information.
