About the classes
There will be six classes held on Zoom every week with each class focusing on different components of exercise and types of training. Specific focus will include improving cardiovascular endurance (aerobic exercise), strength (resistance training), flexibility (stretching) and coordination. We will also include specific focus on problem areas such as drop foot, balance and posture to name a few.
These classes are not ‘just another class aimed at increasing breathing rate and moving a weight around’. Instead, the primary aim is to develop strength, flexibility, coordination and cardiovascular endurance which can help improve your daily function and achieve your optimum mobility. What you learn and the strength you gain in these classes can help you with day-to-day activities at home.
Please read our Health Screening Questionnaire before taking part in the exercise sessions.
Classes will be held live on a Tuesday and Thursday and will be categorised based on the individual’s ability. The classes will be structured as follows
- Level one (11-11:30am) will focus on exercises for those who are seated, have trunk (core) weakness and have limited upper limb movement
- Level two (11:45am – 12:15pm) will be for those who can transfer independently but may require assistance or the use of a walking aid
- Level three (12:30 – 1pm) for those who mobilise independently with minimal impairment
Individuals are welcome to attend more than one session on a given day.
We will be looking to extend and grow the content we have to offer online throughout the year which will include masterclass videos, taster and information sessions.
We suggest a recommended donation for each session of £5. The donations are important to ensure we can deliver and sustain the online classes in the future. Whilst the suggested amount is £5, we ask people to donate a sum of their choosing so that money is not a barrier to attend the classes. You can get access to the classes by registering here each week.
