Physical activity

Over 50s activities

On this page, you will find details of specific activities we provide for people aged 50+. All sessions are open to the general public and aimed at encouraging you to take part in regular physical activity as part of a healthy, active lifestyle. Don’t worry if you are trying an activity for the first time; classes can be tailored to suit your needs. Our programme offer is as much about meeting new people and friends as it is for doing some exercise and staying active. Be sure to also check out our Walk 4 Health page, too.

Activities covered on this page are:

  • seated exercise classes
  • Active Life classes
Seated exercise

Seated exercise classes

Performing seated exercises will help improve your mobility and prevent falls, and can even be done at home. If you’re not very active, you may want to get the all-clear from a GP before starting. All these classes are open to everyone so put on some loose, comfortable clothing and ensure you have some water and go and try out a class!

For more information regarding any of the activities please contact 0300 300 4248 or email active.lifestyles@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.
