We currently run a range of exercise sessions throughout Gateshead, Sunderland, Washington and Houghton to suit different individuals needs.
Our Classes include:
Low Impact Exercise
Our low impact exercise classes are aimed at those people who want to get active and improve their quality of life. We use a range of Cardiovascular, strength and flexibility exercise to keep you on the move, independent and living life to your potential. Ideally suited for people with long term health conditions.
Easy does it
Our easy does it class it a more gentle class aimed at those with poor mobility, limited walking ability and are prone to falling. The class will use Cardiovascular, strength, balance and relaxation techniques all of which can be done either standing or sitting in a chair.
Our Dancercise gold class is aimed at those who want to get moving to the music and includes moves from the Waltz, Cha Cha, Jive and many other of your ballroom favourites. No partner required.
A big part of what we do is to make every person who comes to our sessions feel part of our community.
We run different social events throughout the year.
This was our Christmas party.
Meet Richie and Emma
I started The LIFE programme in 2015 after being made redundant from my council role as a exercise specialist. I have worked for 12 years in the Health and Fitness industry and have a passion for helping people with long term health conditions. I have worked in many settings including the NHS, local councils, private health clubs and Universities. I have run programs for people with cancer, cardiac problems, COPD, wide spread pain and those prone to falling. We want people to come and exercise with us and join our community where you can spend time with like minded people and share your experiences.
Yes we are partners, before you ask. I have worked with older people for 20 years. Currently working for the NHS and since last year teaching exercise classes for The LIFE programme. I teach the Dancercise Gold as Richie can't Dance as well as some of the Low Impact Exercise and Easy Does It sessions.
If you would like any more information on our sessions then please feel free to ring RICHIE on 07999 500 951 or EMMA on 07963 048 179 or fill out the form below.
