    We are thrilled to announce new exercise sessions across North Somerset to help you stay independent. Our classes are now in Weston-Super-Mare, Winscombe, Clevedon, Yatton, Shipham, Portishead and Nailsea.

    To match your needs, we are introducing two levels of Strong and Steady classes, so you can join a session that is right for you.

  • Now launched in North Somerset!

    ESCAPE-pain is a free, group-based rehabilitation program for the management of knee and hip arthritis.

    The classes are delivered over a six-week period by an exercise professional and each class includes a short education session as well as some physical activity.  The program has been clinically proven to reduce pain, increase function, improve mental well-being and self-confidence. 

    Have you had chronic hip or knee pain for at least 3 months?
    Are you aged over 45?
    Are you independently mobile and able to carry out individual exercises?
    Are you willing to attend the class twice a week for six weeks?

    If so, then this program might be just right for you.

    Please get in touch for more information and to discuss self-referral into the service.
