At Fit For Life we understand that the term 'Exercise' can have negative associations for some older adults and can sometimes be a major barrier to getting someone engaging in any from of movement or physical activity.
The truth of the matter is that 'any' form of movement while sitting, standing, lying down will have beneficial physical and mental benefits.
The delivery of appropriate, progressive and effective exercise classes and physical activity programmes is where Fit For Life started our services in 2001. We have developed, designed and delivered thousands of group and individual programmes specifically tailored for older adults from the most active, to older adults that may have had limited physical activity and had never exercised In their life.
What is the difference between Exercise & Physical Activity?
Physical activity is any movement that is carried out by the muscles that require energy. In other words, it is any movement a person does.
Exercise is, by definition, planned, structured, repetitive and intentional movement. Exercise is also intended to improve or maintain physical fitness.
Physical Fitness can be defined the ability to carry out daily tasks with vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue and with ample energy to enjoy leisure-time pursuits and to meet unforeseen emergencies.
Regardless of what level of physical fitness you are starting off at, we have the expertise and clinical background to provide you with an appropriate, safe and fun physical activity or exercise programme. We will ensure that you will get health benefits and positive results whilst safely achieving your goals.
We have numerous options of how we can assist you in improving your physical fitness including individual programmes in your own home, in-person or online, or in a group setting again (with in-person or 'Live' online options). Please click below to get more information.
