Strength and balance class for older people


Active Always programme

Active Always is a programme of gentle physical activity classes delivered through Active Rotherham by qualified and experienced instructors.

The programme offers a range of classes to ensure everyone can join in at their own pace. We run a variety of activities across the borough based in local community venues.

As part of the Active Always programme we offer a variety of classes:

  • Active Always Gentle Exercise Classes are for those who are new to exercise or want a gentle to moderate level of exercise class
  • Strength and Balance Classes (Otago exercises to prevent falls and increase stability, mobility and flexibility)
  • Active Allsports (Boccia, Kurling, and different activities at Places for People leisure centres across Rotherham)
  • Active Care Homes (gentle exercise, seated exercise, boccia classes are available on request)
  • Walking Groups (Walking for Health) Walking in particular is a great way to improve your health and just about anyone can do it. Walking 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week can bring substantial health benefits. An ideal way to achieve this is to take a walk in your Local Park or green space
  • Active Workplace (Active Rotherham can help workplaces run activities either onsite or close by for employees to get fit and healthy, please get in touch for more details)
