Join the brand-new ENGAGE (Everyone Health & Nottinghamshire Get up and Go Exercise) programme at a venue in Nottinghamshire.
What is the Programe?
Nottinghamshire County Council is working in partnership with Everyone Health to launch ENGAGE, a new group exercise programme for adults aged over 55 who may have mobility or stability challenges. You can either be referred by a healthcare professional, or you can ask ENGAGE whether or not the programme is right for you.
The classes involve a number of chair-based exercises and OTAGO – which blends seated and standing exercise sessions designed to improve your balance, strength and co-ordination. You don’t need to bring anything with you – all equipment is provided – but it’s a good idea to bring along some comfy shoes or trainers.
Classes are held on a weekly basis, lasting between 1 and 1 ½ hours and, as well as the physical benefits, the ENGAGE programme will also help improve or maintain your memory, mood, sleep pattern and duration as well as your social contacts.
How to Join
You’ll find the classes all over Nottinghamshire and running throughout the year, with plenty of tea, biscuits and opportunities to meet new people at each one.
If you’d like to join in, contact your healthcare professional, or contact the Falls Prevention Officer on 03330050092 or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org
