Group Exercise Classes

Fit For Life have been delivering researched based group exercise classes in Irish Nursing Homes since 2001. This therapy has been researched and highly recommended as an ideal form of physical activity, especially for older adults as it provides both physical and mental health benefits. 

 

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.

We can deliver our classes as part of an integrated allied healthcare package with physiotherapy and occupational therapy or as a stand-alone service and classes can now be successfully delivered at more cost effective rates through 'live' online remote classes. 

 

 

A Fit For Life Group Exercise Class© will be:

  • 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

  • Able to cater for specific populations and pathologies but also for participants of different levels of ability
