Staying Steady strength and balance classes

Staying Steady is a programme of strength and balance classes to help build strength, walk steadily and lower your risk of falling.

How the classes can help you

A Staying Steady class could help you if you’re feeling unsteady when moving around, are worried about falling or are less mobile than you’d like to be.

The classes can help you:

  • stay independent and carry on doing the things you enjoy
  • improve your confidence and reduce the fear of falling 
  • to be mobile and healthy
  • keep active and have fun 

What the classes involve

Classes are led by instructors who can adapt the exercises to suit you, so you can exercise safely with support from experts.

Each class lasts for an hour where you’ll be taken through exercises that can be done either seated or standing.  

During the class you might be using equipment such as bands, balls and hoops, which are provided.

At the end of the class you’ll be given some information about exercises to do at home.

How much the classes cost 

£3.50 per class, pay as you go.
