Liverpool Sit Fit Older Adult Classes
Exercise can be daunting at the best of times but especially so if you have fallen out of the habit, or maybe even never really given it a chance. However there are a growing number of exercise classes aimed specifically at older adults and preventing falls, with a focus on increasing their strength, stability and balance – doing so in a well paced and empathetic manner.
