Home Exercise Programme
This FREE -at home - strength and balance exercise programme is intended to support senior adults in B31 and B45 area’s who may feel less confident and stable on their feet, as a result of recent ‘lockdown restrictions’.
Those undertaking the programme should not have any significant health conditions or have received clinical advice to highlight restrictions to exercise.
The programme is intended to be provided flexibly to support clients. A personal trainer will be available through phone / home visits as preferred (and dependant on national restrictions).
This programme is based on NHS and ‘Otago’ exercise guides.
The Otago Exercise Programme (OEP) is an evidenced-based, "home-based”, individually tailored strength and balance retraining programme which has been used across the world.
The “Get Steady” printed booklet is available through various local groups and can be requested by email or printed form. This provides basic exercises and how to progress in the programme if required.
If anyone wish to take things forward they can contact System Fitness for an assessment / monitoring form. Once this is completed and returned, an individual personal training plan and detailed exercises will be provided.
At any stage, telephone support will be available to provide advice and optional reviews.
In addition door step / garden visits can be provided within social distance guidance.
The programme is run and co-ordinated through System Fitness C.I.C. a Non Profit making community interest company.
The aims of System Fitness CIC are to support adults over 50 in South Birmingham / North Worcestershire to improve their physical fitness.
Leaflets have been funded through local donations and personal trainer time will be provided free.
The programme is funded to run until the end of October 2020.
