Flying Lioness Wellbeing
Local exercise classes in East Cambridgeshire will be helping the over 60s to turn back time.
Jo Griffin will be running “Move it or Lose it” exercise classes aimed at those who might think they are too old to exercise, those that haven’t exercised for a while or those that are recovering from ill health or injury and want to return to gentle exercise. Classes can be completed seated, with chair support or standing.
Each exercise class helps to improve flexibility, aerobic health, balance and strength (FABS for short). The group sessions are delivered by a specialist instructor who encourages and motivates their clients to join in and have fun whatever their age or ability and the most important muscles to flex will be those in our faces as we smile and maybe even sing along.
It’s proving popular with the older generation as the classes offer opportunities to socialise as well as exercise along with noticeable benefits to their mobility, health and wellbeing.
To try a Move it or Lose it class, the first is always free, contact Jo Griffin; Tel 07958068085 or visit http://www.moveitorloseit.co.uk
