Group Exercise Therapy

Fit For Life have been delivering researched based group Exercise therapy since 2001. This therapy has been researched and highly recommended as an ideal form of physical activity, especially for the older adult. Fit For Life’s knowledge has led to the development of a successful exercise intervention for older adults. We know how to deliver fun, safe and effective group exercise classes for older adults and these should consist of strength, flexibility, balance and cardiovascular components. 

 

We are passionate about our role in providing exercise to the older adult. Following our National Frameworks vision, ‘where everyone can enjoy physical and mental health and wellbeing to their full potential’, we are part of making Ireland a good country to live in and age in.  

 

The benefits of physical activity include staying independent for as long as possible. We all know the importance of independence and we work with people as this becomes more challenging. We ensure that individuals achieve their own potential, providing support with personal goals and best practice interventions to gain these goals.

  • Researched, designed and developed from our experience of working with older Irish adults

  • Progressive, ensuring that participants will benefit continuously

  • Individual assessments are made prior, during and post to measure progress
