David, aged 68 lives at a Care Home in Stockton and has been participating in Seated Exercise for several months. As well as taking part in the exercise sessions, he enjoys a walk to the shop each day.
“I found out about the sessions from a poster and word of mouth. I keep returning as I enjoy the sessions and it has helped with my balance, and to strengthen my muscles. The best parts of the class are being able to use the equipment, for example maracas and parachute.”
David feels the sessions allow him to “get to know people around the accommodation complex. “I would recommend the sessions to a friend, as they have helped with aches and pains, particularly in my legs – I’m feeling less pain, sometimes none. I feel fitter within myself also.”
