Move Easy classes
A 12-week course of low level, introductory group exercise classes offered as a first step activity on your Wellness Pathway. Classes are gentle circuits, with seated options and 'time outs' when needed, focusing on co-ordination, strength and balance.
Who are they aimed at?
Move Easy classes are for anyone aged 16+ in County Durham who may not have the confidence or ability to join in with the mainstream class programme.
They would be suit:
- those with reduced fitness, strength, mobility or balance
- older people
- people who were advised to shield during the pandemic
- people with long term health conditions and disabilities
- those who have had Covid or are suffering from the effects of long Covid
- people who are new to exercise or haven't exercised for some time
Purpose of the class
Move Easy classes will be offered to people who want to get back into physical activity after Covid has impacted their mental and physical health.
Participants will be encouraged and supported to progress from 10-30 minutes of exercise which will enable them to progress, should they wish to, into the current timetable of group exercise classes in leisure centres or community facilities
