In addition to the full range of physiotherapy services offered at KPC, we also run some fitness classes at The Bragbury Centre, which is the excellent community centre here in Bragbury End.
KEEP FIT/KEEP WELL EXERCISE CLASSES FOR THE OVER 60s.
We run two exercise classes a week for the over sixties. These classes are run by two of our physios: Gloudien on Mondays at 1.45pm, and Diana on Wednesdays at 1.00pm. The classes last about 45 mins and the exercises are designed to ensure all the joints and muscles in the body are worked. We exercise in sitting, standing and walking positions so no-one has to get down onto the floor.
Some of the exercises work on improving balance to help prevent falls, and other exercises are to improve strength and general mobility.
The groups are very sociable and we organise a Christmas lunch for anyone who would like to go out for a meal at Christmas time
If you are interested then come along and give it a try – you will be made most welcome. The charge is only £3.00 per session and you can come as often as you wish. If you would like any more information please feel free to drop into the clinic, or give us a call.
We run two Pilates classes on Tuesday evenings, one at at 6.00pm and one at 8.00pm; these classes last for one hour each. The classes are run by Lorna, who is a qualified Pilates instructor. Her qualifications include Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates, Level 3 Award in Prenatal & Postnatal Pilates, Pilates for Common Orthopaedic Conditions and Pilates with Small Equipment. Each class has layered exercises to ensure participants can work at a level that is both safe and effective for their own personal needs.
Pilates helps to improve your core strength, which can prevent or reduce the recurrence of back pain. It is also valuable to improve your postural awareness.
The charge is £45.00 for a block of six sessions. The classes are very popular and space is limited so if you are interested please feel free to contact us to put yourself on the list for the next course. We will do our best to fit you in!
We can also offer 1:1 Pilates sessions, which are particularly good if you are new to Pilates. These sessions can assist with helping to understand and perform both the basic fundamentals and principles of Pilates. If you are interested in this service, please contact us for more details.
