WHY JOIN A 1ST STEP EXERCISE CLASS?
Just because you you have a long-term health condition, are rehabilitating from an injury or aren't as mobile as you once were, doesn't mean you can't enjoy the benefits of regular exercise.
As well as the physical benefits, attending our classes is also good for your mental health and well-being. Many of our groups now get together for Coffee and Chat following their class and for many attending they have become an important social occasion.
Form new friendships
Reduce social isolation
Improve mental well-being
Motivate each other
LOW IMPACT EXERCISE & CHAIR BASED CLASSES
Our low impact classes are designed for those looking for a gentle introduction into fitness and rehab and health maintenance. We work on upper body, lower body, core body strength and balance, either seated or standing, depending on what suits you best.
When you first book a class we always have a chat with you to find out about your specific situation and any medical conditions. Classes are kept small, usually eight to ten, so we can monitor everyone throughout and advise you if you need to adapt any of the exercises to your individual circumstances.
And just because you doing a chair based exercise or low impact, it doesn’t mean you won’t get a good work out. You’ll be working your body and soon feeling the benefits.
It's a great group! We all have problems with our body. Lovely Kamal, our trainer, just advises... Do what you can, there is always an alternative. If you can't do a particular exercise on the floor, then Kamal advises to do it on a chair. In this class, you can achieve so much, suited to your own ability. I love it, 'cos we do have a giggle as well! Come and join us!
