Ageing brings an increase in sedentary lifestyles, reduced mobility, and increase in falls as well as chronic and age-related diseases. One of the simplest ways to counteract the adverse effects of ageing is exercise, which will also increase participants’ physical, social and mental well-being.

These classes will work on strengthening major muscles. The major muscles include legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms. Through strengthening exercises you can build and maintain strong bones, regulate blood sugar and blood pressure, and maintain a healthy weight.

Good posture keeps your body functioning in the correct way. With good postures comes well-balanced muscles and can help you prevent injuries. For adults to have good posture it can help with chronic back pain and other aches and pains. Arthritis and similar conditions can deter people from exercising. However, even with a chronic condition exercise can help with relieving pain.
