Age UK Medway are currently working with Nuffield Health Group to help older people to exercise, to take measures to strengthen their muscle tone and to generally improve their health and wellbeing.
Concentrating on mobility and core strength, our Chris Ellis Centre has been working closely with James, a Personal Trainer at Nuffield Health Club, to create a gentle introductory programme for our clients.
Working closely with one of their Personal Trainers, we were able to create a programme tailored to each client individually, which was important to us as many older people go long periods of time without any excercise and can find the idea of attending a gym a little daunting. Initially an eight week programme, our partnership with Nuffield Health Club is still ongoing now as it has been such a huge success among our clients.
Our clients have noticed so many benefits:
- Muscles strengthening
- Improvements in posture
- Improvements in core strength
- Awareness of their health in general
- And most importantly, they are having great fun!
One client's family was so pleased with their progress, that they bought them their very own set of dumbbells and kettle bell weights for Christmas.
