Our Zero Impact Easy-Gym is Ideal for people with Muscle tone problems, Osteoporosis, Mobility problems, Joint problems and poor posture. Easy-Gym offers a total body work-out without overstressing joints or muscles our machines work your muscles rather than you working the machine. Use all 6 machines and get a total body work-out.
If you do want to lose some weight then why not come along to one of the Centres Slimming Clubs and supplement it with one of our daytime or evening Aerobic classes. The Exercise on Prescription Scheme is for people who want to be more active to improve their health. Ask your GP or Practice Nurse to see whether your Surgery is involved in the Scheme. Alternatively why not come in to the Centre and ask for the Health and Fitness Advisor.
