Trim, tone and dance your way to stay FABS!

A new fitness class designed specifically for the over-60s has launched in Calverton as part of a campaign to help people to stay young by improving strength, balance and overall health as we age.

Julie Rose is on a mission to keep the over 60s moving by encouraging them to go along to an exercise class with a difference designed by Move it or Lose it’s founder Julie Robinson as seen on BBC’s “How to Stay Young”. This class is known as FABS, which stands for Flexibility, Aerobics, Balance and Strength.

The FABS programme combines exercises that have been scientifically proven by the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at the University of Birmingham to turn back the clock. Julie Rose explains how her Move it or Lose it class can help older people feel fabulous about life:

“I’m thrilled to be part of the FABS family. I want to make a real difference to the community and to get this age group feeling great about themselves again. There’s so many classes and clubs aimed at the under fifties and very little for baby boomers who still want to feel great but don’t like going to the gym to keep fit. It’s a fantastic way to get together with other people in the area, keep fit and have fun whilst doing it! The exercises we do in the classes are easy to follow and fun. This isn’t about people dressing in lycra ready to hit the gym or do a high intensity session, FABS is for people who want to live longer, happier, healthier lives. We ensure there’s a warm welcome for everyone who attends and the first session is free.

Details: Fridays, 10.30-11.30am at Calverton Village Hall.
