As mentioned at our September meeting, although this is not a U3A activity, this may still be of interest to some of our members. Every Saturday Helen Mulhall, who works at the Halton Tennis Centre, runs a pay as you go class (£8) at 8.30am. Helen essentially gives a gym programme to the group for 6 weeks and leaves the group to work to it whilst she supervises as much or as little as required. See more details in the attached flyer. There is no requirement to be a member of the gym and neither do you need previous experience.
Helen is seeing a lot more members in their 60s, 70s and 80s now and obviously regular exercise can help alleviate a lot of symptoms from arthritis, back pain, etc as well as helping to delay osteoporosis and keep the heart and joints healthy. Helen is qualified in the GP Referral Scheme as well as having a Level 4 Certificate in Lower Back Pain.
