Strength and Balance – Forever Active

Back to Activities

Aimed at improving confidence and mobility whilst standing and moving, Strength & Balance classes are for people who have had a fall or at risk of falling. If you want to feel steadier on your feet, then why not come along?

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • meeting other people facing similar challenges helps you feel less alone;
  • gentle movement will help you re-connect with your body;
  • led by trained instructors, your confidence and mobility will gradually improve.

What to expect?

Forever Active deliver exercise classes for over 50s throughout South Cambs, East Cambs and Cambridge City.

Strength & Balance classes are a mixture of seated and standing exercises that are aimed at improving confidence, balance and mobility if you’ve had a fall or are at risk of falling (more information about Falls Prevention here). Every exercise can be modified to suit all abilities.

If you can’t attend Strength & Balance classes in person, there are live online classes as well as on demand classes you can do anytime. You can take a look at the online and in person class timetable here.

More info:

Strength & Balance classes last for an hour.

If it’s your first time attending, please contact the enquiries team to confirm class details.

Wear something comfortable and suitable footwear such as trainers. Bring water so you can stay hydrated and don’t eat anything at least one hour before exercise. If you have asthma or angina, bring your inhaler/spray.

You’ll be asked to complete a pre-exercise health questionnaire prior to your first session.

Venues have accessible toilets.

The first class is free, but all classes after that are pay as you go, however  you will need to become a Forever Active member. Members receive discounted sessions and priority booking at certain classes as well as updates about new sessions.
