The Studio launches Fit 4 Life classes for the over 55s

“It’s important people feel comfortable and at ease when they exercise, which was one of the reasons why we decided to launch our Fit 4 Life classes,” explains Nicola Carless, Owner of The Studio.

For those of you who haven’t been to The Studio, it’s a fitness venue with a real difference. The first thing that immediately hits you when you first walk in through the front door is the friendliness of the staff and also the other members. Everybody’s made to feel welcome, whether it’s the first or 50th class they’re attending.

And it’s this ethos that’s been the fuel behind the creation of The Studio’s latest exercise programme, Fit 4 Life.

Aimed specifically at men and women over the age of 55, this new course is designed to give older people the chance to exercise with people who are of a similar age to them.

“It matters to me that everybody feels comfortable when they take part in our classes and I could see that some people were finding taking part in mixed group sessions intimidating, which is why I’ve decided to provide them with their own dedicated programme,” explains Nicola.

The course will be taught by Nicola, as well as instructors, Vicki and Sue, who’ve all spent the last few months working hard to gain their Older Adults Exercise Qualification – which all of them passed with flying colours!

Suitable for people of all abilities, the programme will run as a six-week course every Tuesday from 10.45am to 11am. After the last session, members will get the chance to sit, relax and chat with the rest of the group at a coffee morning.

“These classes are designed to be varied and fun. They’ll be tailored to people’s health levels and any conditions they might have, as well as slightly adapted every week depending on people’s preferences.

“More importantly, these classes will hopefully enable members to carry out everyday tasks with ease, boost their energy levels and help manage health-related conditions, such as high blood pressure.”
