The Exercise Club’s contirbution to the city widecome on board!
project is a class we call FICSIT.
It’s basically strength and conditioning for older adults. We do a variety of balance, co-ordination, memory, stretching, strength work, lifting and carrying (like how to move a heavy pot plant, for example)
In simple (ish..) terms, balance appaears to deteriorate as one or the other of the lower limbs stops working properly. The brain learns to compensate and so begins a cycle where the brain cant hear/feel what the ankle/foot/knee/hip is doing, so it keeps moving in unhelpful ways.
A simple test, which we do at the beginning of the class, allows us to work out which leg is misbehaving and to develop exercises to help.
To come and try it out, or to find out more or ask almost anything you like, Call Ross on 07587552653 or Ross@theexerciseclub.co.uk
