Healthy Hips & Hearts

Healthy Hips and Hearts classes are gentle, chair based exercise sessions targeting older people to reduce ill health, reduce falls, increase social interaction, improve balance and improve overall wellbeing.

Classes are led by Healthy Hips and Hearts mentors, trained volunteers who offer weekly classes in community centres, sheltered accommodation schemes, day centres and care homes across the city. Our community classes are open access for all to attend.

“I have always enjoyed this class and have met many new friends.  I feel fitter and healthier and this led me to join more active classes as well. 

A couple of years ago I actually trained to become a Healthy Hips and Hearts mentor and so some weeks I lead the class at the Rainbow Rooms, we all have a really good time!"

The instructor is wonderful, she is supportive and caring, which gives you the confidence to try harder.
