  • Do you feel unsteady?
  • Are you worried about falling?
  • Are you less mobile than you would like?

Staying Steady is a programme of strength and balance classes to help keep you strong, walk steadily and lower the risk of falling.

 

How will Staying Steady classes benefit you?

  • Help you stay independent and carry on doing the
    things you enjoy
  • Improve your confidence and reduce fear of falling
  • Be mobile and healthy
  • Help you keep active and have fun!

So, if you’re feeling a bit unsteady, worried about falling or are less mobile than you’d like, then this class could be for you.

"The Staying Steady classes are excellent! It’s made me feel much more confident in daily life and I’ve made some good friends at the venue"

What does it cost?
£3.50 per class, pay as you go

What does the class involve?
Classes are led by instructors who can adapt the exercises to suit you, so you can exercise safely with support from experts.
We use equipment such as bands, balls and hoops (all provided). Exercises can be done seated or standing.

How long are the classes?
Each Staying Steady class lasts for an hour and you’ll be given some information about exercises to do at home.

Why not stay for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat afterwards?
You can learn more about organisations and activities in your area that can help you stay active and independent.

Joining is easy
