BETTER BODY CLUB



OVER 50s & 60s

Cardio exercise means doing a rhythmic activity that raises your heart rate into your target heart rate zone, the zone where you'll burn the most fat and calories. There are a number of other benefits to cardio exercise including; it can help strengthen the heart, improve lung capacity, increase bone density, improve quality of sleep, and help make you feel good. A number of our cardio classes also include strength and toning work.


Below you can see the cardio and strength & tone classes we have on offer.


Over 50s Keep Fit & Tone

This is an all round class that will help keep you fit and build your strength. The class has an aerobic section that will increase your heart rate without any high impact exercises, so easy on the knees! It also has a weight section which uses small hand weights.

The whole class is done to great music and can be attended by both men and women and suitable for all ages over 50 as there are plenty of adaptations of each exercise.


There are no mats involved, exercises are taught in a standing position with the option to sit in a chair if you have mobility issues.


This class is taught by Martine.

Chair Pilates


This class is ideal for the older adult or people with reduced mobility. It is also good for people recovering from an injury or operation, before they return to their normal exercise routine. We have designed it using a chair rather than a mat.


With a gentle Tai Chi style warm-up, the class moves on to stretches and mobility for all the major joints and works on balance and strength, finishing with relaxation. Stretchy bands and soft balls are used during the class. The aim is for a fun class where you will gently stretch and get moving, plus a chance to meet new people.
