Active Leeds offer a 20 week programme of exercise for people at the risk of falls.
These ‘strength and balance’ sessions are designed to improve strength, balance and co-ordination for people with low mobility. There is a focus on improving confidence and reducing the fear of falling.
Building and maintaining strength and balance can help individuals carry on doing the things they enjoy and stay independent.
The sessions involve a mixture of chair based exercises and standing strength and balance exercises. The sessions offer participants the chance to practise specific exercises with other people who have experienced a fall or loss of confidence.
Sessions are delivered by qualified instructors in a range of community venues across Leeds. After finishing the class there is opportunity for refreshments, and social chat. The sessions cost £2.00 per person per class.
