The course aims to help participants to improve their level of fitness and stamina, and should help them to remain active and supple.

It is suitable for anyone who wants to work at their own level through a variety of gentle exercises to music, toning and stretching.

During the course participants are able to work at their own pace through a warm-up session, workout and relaxation, to tone, strengthen and improve mobility and flexibility. The sessions are enjoyable and friendly. The programme leader will guide participants through various exercises and routines to build strength and exercise all the muscles, sometimes with optional use of weights or resistance bands.
