Fit from 50
Age Concern in Spelthorne came up with the idea to start Fit from 50 after learning that there was an issue around older people who were finding it hard to get back into sport. The lack of physical activity meant that heart disease and strokes were becoming an increasing problem in Spelthorne.
Thanks to an Awards for All grant of £9,600, the programme delivers sports and activities to men and women over 50 to help increase the physical wellbeing of older people in the area.
Over a year, they run eight-week courses which cover everything from yoga and Pilates to badminton and netball. No previous experience is required for any of the sessions. They are led by a qualified teacher who ensures that everyone gets involved and has a chance to enjoy the session.
There is also a nutrition class during the course, which gives everyone advice on how to eat better. And at the start and end of the eight weeks, each person has their blood pressure taken so they can see the impact the exercise has had on their health.
Peter is one of the regular participants who found out about the programme through a friend. He said, “I have lost 20kg in weight, my bone density has improved and I’m much happier now. Fit from 50 has given me the kick start I needed and now I have continued with sports because it is important to me.”
