Chair Fitness Class
Homecare Preferred has joined forces with Sonia Tonge who runs Zumba Gold to create a gentle Chair Fitness Class for the elderly and for people with mobility problems.
Our new classes are on Tuesday mornings, from 11.45am - 12.30pm, in the Waterhouse Hall, part of the United Reformed Church, 77 Compton Road, London N21 1TX.
We all know the importance of keeping fit, whatever our age. Older people tend to spend more time sitting, but this lack of movement can lead to the stiffening of joints and actually make it even harder for people with limited mobility to move. Our programmes involve a series of gentle stretches, slow movements and breathing exercises, taken at a leisurely pace. Our participants all say they enjoy it, feel better afterwards and say that it is encouraging them to try to be more mobile. It gets them out of the house, socialising and joining in with other people.
Carers are welcome to join in. If you or someone you know would like to join us for a free taster class, please come along and feel free to bring along your friends.
