What is Move it or Lose it?

Move it or Lose it is an exercise class designed for those age 50+ and over , or those with limited mobility and a need for gentle exercise.

Attending a Move it or Lose it class is great fun and as much a social event as a fitness class. It will help you stay fit, motivated and active for life as well as helping with maintaining flexibility, mobility, aerobic fitness, balance and strength.
The exercises have been created in partnership with the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at Birmingham University to help “turn back the clock” and help maintain independence.


The exercises can be done standing, seated on a chair or standing with chair support and can be adapted to meet your needs with less repetitions or lower resistance.
