Fit Santa

'Tis the season to be jolly – but Sport Bay of Plenty wants to help keep locals merry all-year round with concession cards to their Keep on your Feet Strength & Balance Classes.

Keep on your Feet classes are fun and friendly group fitness sessions aimed at men and women of all abilities who wish to stay fit, and improve muscle tone and overall balance.

Facilitated by Sport Bay of Plenty, the Keep on your Feet project is part of a nationwide initiative to reduce falls and fractures, and support older people to ‘live stronger for longer’.

These concession cards are the perfect Christmas gift for that hard-to-buy-for relative or the loved one in your life who wants to increase their activity levels.

Project leader Jen Riley says Keep on your Feet classes are about improving both physical and mental wellbeing, with many participants commenting on how they have got their zest for life back.

“Our classes, led by vibrant and engaging instructors, are a lot of fun – participants don’t even realise they are being active for a whole hour!

“We’ve seen huge improvements in the strength and balance of those who regularly attend, and when they start to feel better, they come away from their class with big smiles.”

Keith Martin runs the Never2Old class at Toi Ohomai’s Aquatic & Fitness Centre, which creates individualised programmes for participants in a fun and friendly environment.

In just a few weeks, Keith has seen huge improvements in his group’s balance, co-ordination, strength and stamina.

“We love helping our members achieve their little milestones and we have so much fun along the way. Everyone is made to feel very welcome in a comfortable and safe environment.”
