‘Forever Fit’ & ‘Senior Strong’ functional strength, balance and fitness classes for over 50s

HLF has a range of fitness, strength & balance classes designed specifically for older adults, our classes are welcoming and aim to put the fun and enjoyment back into getting fitter while working in a safe and social environment.

The classes are suitable for people with stable long term health conditions such as asthma, arthritis, osteoarthritis, as well as bone conditions such as osteopenia.

They are great to help you improve your fitness, strength, agility, balance and mobility, as well being being a good opportunity for socialising and meeting new friends.

Depending on your current ability and Functional Fitness Levels, HLF has two different types of classes called ‘Senior Strong‘ and ‘Forever Fit‘.

Forever Fit – functional fitness class for low to moderate fitness & ability levels

This class is aimed for those who may be new to exercise, find it difficult to get up and down from the floor, and have low to moderate strength, balance and fitness levels.

Senior Strong – functional fitness class for moderate to higher fitness & ability levels

This class is aimed for those who are already fairly active, have average to good strength, balance and fitness levels. You should also be able to get up and down from the floor without difficulty and/or impacting any medical conditions you have. 

If you have any questions about the classes or are interested in attending the Forever Fit or Senior Strong, please call us for a friendly chat on 07306 334222 or email ian@healthlifefitness.org

‘Body Shape’ weight management & fitness programmes

(Coming soon – contact us for more information)

Thinking of losing some weight and need a bit of help? Our Body Shape weight management programmes may be for you.

Unfortunately, most people who lose weight will usually put it back on within a year or two. Some of the main reasons for this are that they:

  • Feel they don’t have enough knowledge, motivation and confidence about making long term lifestyle changes to keep the weight off.
  • May not have control of issues such as stress, anxiety and other things that can cause them to make bad diet and lifestyle choices leading to weight regain.
  • Make unrealistic, unsustainable (and sometimes unhealthy) lifestyle changes to lose weight that can’t be maintained over a long time.

To lose weight and keep it off, most of us need to make ‘realistic and sustainable’ long term lifestyle changes.

This includes things such as having a better mindset and replacing those ‘bad choices and habits’ with ones that help you lose weight and keep it off in healthy way.

To help you create new habits and stick to these lifestyle changes, our weight management programmes help provide you with the support, knowledge and skill’s to allow you to take back control, lose body fat, change your body shape (tone up), be fitter and maintain a healthy body weight.

We do this by focusing on key areas such as:

  • Goal setting, helping you identify and achieve your goals around your weight, body shape, diet and fitness
  • Giving you knowledge around key aspects of weight loss such as nutrition, physical activity, alcohol and portion sizes
  • Developing a better mindset to help you overcome barriers and deal with setbacks
  • Delivering fitness sessions to help you tone up, get fitter as well as burning off the calories

If you have any questions about the Body Shape programme or are interested in attending, please call us for a friendly chat on 07306 334222 or email ian@healthlifefitness.org

Alternatively, you can also go to the HLF ‘contact page‘ and leave us a message there.
