  • Over 50s exercise sessions

Regardless of how fit you are, regular exercise provides plenty of benefits for older people, including improved memory, greater physical ability, better overall quality of life and improved mental wellbeing. For example, circuit training can increase strength, increase muscle, develop balance and improve cardiovascular health and potentially reduce the risk of falls.
