Strength and balance exercise programme

Are you feeling less steady on your feet or maybe finding it harder to rise from a chair or use the stairs? 

An Arun Wellbeing strength and balance activity course may be suitable for you!

As we get older, muscles naturally start to lose strength. Everyday tasks such as rising from a chair, or walking outside alone, can become more of a challenge.

Keeping Fit and Heathy in Later Life is an affordable community-based strength & balance exercise programme for anyone over the age of 65, who has either experienced a fall, feels unsteady on their feet or perhaps has some concerns about falling in the future. Developed with qualified postural stability instructors, the classes are focused on building balance and strength.

Programme participants are offered: 

  • Local regular classes across the Arun District
  • Practical advice
  • One-to-one strength and balance assessments

Important Notice (Covid-19):

Even during a pandemic, it is important to keep ourselves moving and remain sociable! We will do our best to continue to deliver our courses subject to current government guidance.
