Feedback from participants in our live stand strong exercise classes:
'Great start to the day, I feel great satisfaction and empowered by it'. 'I have never really had a fear of falling but I would consider my balance to be an area I need to work on. Since joining the Stand strong I have maintained my balance and become more confident with this'. Bridie
'Sit to stands; I can now complete more of these and I am happy with that'. 'I like the structure and its something positive I do for my health. It has added structure to my week since lockdown as I have been cocooning'. Kay
'Helps to keep me supple, I'm not stiff anymore. I have to watch my balance and the balance exercises are useful'. 'The balance exercises are extremely beneficial to me and I always aim to impress Bridget my instructor in the classes as I feel it is improving all the time'. Brian
'Fitter than I was, not as tired as I used to be. I was very happy when the classes started back on zoom as I quickly got back to this fitness'. 'Never had a fear of falling, very few falls, the last was 15 years ago. Other than that, as my husband has fallen more regularly it's something I'm cautious of. I know the tandem stepping and figure of 8 stepping exercises we do in class have helped me to keep my balance where it is today'. Deirdre
