Level 1 Chair Based
This class is designed for those who can walk slowly and may have limited standing balance and require mobility aids. It is also suitable for people with breathing difficulties.
The Strength and Balance Class is based around a chair so that participants can use the chair for support when doing the exercises. Alternatively, some exercises can be performed seated.
Level 2 – Strength and Balance Circuit
This class is appropriate for those who are mobile (with or without a mobility aid) but may have difficulty with movement and daily activities. It is also suitable for people with breathing difficulties.
Being a circuit based class, the main part of the class involves moving around a room and doing an exercise for a short period of time before travelling a short distance to do another exercise. It is important that participants can move independently (with or without a mobility aid) to the next exercise station, however a chair can be utilised for support when doing the specific exercises.
Level 3 – Step in Circuit
This class is suitable for participants with independent mobility (with or without a mobility aid) but may have some difficulty doing daily activities.
Level 4 – Step Up Circuit
This class is designed for those who are mobile (without an aid) and have minimal difficulty doing daily activities.
