Strength and balance training for older adults
It’s never too late to improve physical fitness, to start exercising and reap the rewards that being more active brings! Otago strength and balance exercise is a programme for older adults, centred around falls prevention and rehabilitation from falls. The aim to improve and build core strength and balance, so that people can remain active, mobile and independent for as long as possible.
Sessions can be delivered on a 1-2-1 basis as a private personal training session, in the comfort of your own home or in a group class format, which is a great way to get out of the house, have a change of scenery, socialise and form new friendships.
Both Kate and Ruth are qualified to deliver these sessions and have experience of working with people of all abilities and experience levels. Sessions incorporate a mix of chair based, standing and movement exercises using bodyweight, exercise bands and ankle weights. All tailored to an individuals or group ability, and all modifiable so that an individual can work within their capabilities.
