If you find it difficult to get active, why not start walking? It’s really easy to get started, you don’t need any special equipment – and best of all it counts towards your recommended amount of physical activity.
Walking can improve your health, your happiness and, if you join one of our groups, it will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people.
“It has been one of the best things I have ever done. I feel like I’ve found the real me again, I am healthier, fitter, happier, more confident and have made so many new friends” – This could be you!
FALLS PREVENTION STRENGTH AND BALANCE 20 WEEK PROGRAMME
Active Leeds offer a structured 20 week Falls Prevention Programme of exercise for people at the risk of falls. These ‘Strength and Balance’ sessions are designed to improve strength, balance and co-ordination for people with low mobility. There is a focus on improving confidence and reducing the fear of falling. Building and maintaining strength and balance can help individuals carry on doing the things they enjoy and stay independent. The sessions involve a mixture of chair based exercises and standing strength and balance exercises. The sessions offer participants the chance to practice specific exercises with other people who have experienced a fall or loss of confidence. Sessions are delivered by qualified instructors.
To attend the Falls Prevention Programme individuals can be referred by their physiotherapist or a health professional. We have also introduced the option of a self-referral. Please contact NET on 0113 2874784.
