A class which allows residents to increase their balance and confidence is set to be launched in Redditch.

Strong and Steady is a light exercise class focussing on strength, mobility, flexibility and balance which will be held at The Space, in the Winyates Centre, each Wednesday at 11.30am.

Redditch Borough Council’s Portfolio-holder for Leisure, Cllr Mike Rouse, said: “Exercise isn’t always about high-intensity cardio classes.

“Maintaining strength and balance as we age can improve our posture, mobility and confidence when it comes to moving around and completing everyday chores, which in turn helps to prevent falls, reducing hospital admissions over winter. 

“We want to provide exercise classes to suit all capabilities and ages,  as well as giving them the chance to meet new people and therefore combat social isolation.”

More classes are due to start around the Borough. Call the number below to register your interest and we may be able to start a session near you!

This class is launched on Wednesday 16th October and is £3.50 a session. For details contact our Sports Development team.
