Seniors classes

We have a wide range of gentle options for 60+ with fully qualified instructors giving careful guidance. Seniors fitness classes are a great starting point for older beginners since they don’t assume prior experience, and they’re ideal for people with chronic disease or who are rehabilitating from injury.

  • Strong 4 Life – a gentle way to build strength, mobility and flexibility
