FABS (60 minutes)
Wednesday 10am – Village Hall
Specifically designed for over 60s this gentle workout uses a combination of seated and standing exercises that mimic the movement patterns we use day to day such as walking up stairs, getting up off the floor and carry heavy loads.  Regular participants have reported gains in muscle strength and coordination as well as reduced aches and pains especially related to frequently used joints such as knees and shoulders. This is a 60 minute class where the emphasis is on fun and social interaction as much as exercise and we always finish with a cuppa and a natter.  £5 per session, school term time only. For more information contact Emma on or 07852226761.
