Health Experts believe 30 minutes of exercise a day has a very positive health benefit.
Increasing physical activity is a national priority as regular exercise is seen as a great way to stop the rise in obesity and the related health conditions it causes. Not all people can achieve the recommended level of exercise but Extend manages to keep you at a decent level of fitness.
Extend Exercise involves gentle movement to music for men and women over sixty years of age but it can also be enjoyed by those with a variety of abilities and is suitable for all ages.
All of our classes are run by qualified tutors who hold a nationally recognised exercise qualification for exercise and fall prevention.
Our older people day care services classes are very friendly and fun and the music reflects appropriate cultural needs. Classes form part of our Day Care Services and in addition we run classes for other groups in Sandwell.
This includes classes for adults that either have learning disabilities or suffer from well being issues.
You can take part in a standing or sitting position and after listening and singing to some catchy and relaxing music you won't even realise that you are exercising. Classes are designed to be person centred so all ages and all abilities can take part safely.
On occasion you will use specialist equipment but you will be supported by the tutor and the group where necessary.
We organise a number of classes throughout the borough, so if your interested in setting up a class in your local area please contact us.
