New instructor for strength and balance exercise programme

2020 sees Horsham District Council’s Health and Wellbeing team welcome a new instructor to its Strong and Steady exercise programme.

Gill Constable has joined the Health and Wellbeing team with a wealth of experience in delivering group exercise programmes and a specialist LaterLife qualification in postural stability instruction.

The Strong & Steady programme includes a free eight week course at The Bridge Leisure Centre in Broadbridge Heath, along with a workshop, new for 2020, that can be taken to rural locations throughout Horsham District.

The aim of programme is to improve strength, balance, coordination and flexibility and maintain people’s independence. It is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those who are prone to tripping or stumbling.

Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Matters and Wellbeing, Cllr Tricia Youtan, said: “We are delighted to welcome Gill and her wealth of knowledge and experience to the Health and Wellbeing team.

“It is vital that we can provide this type of community based strength and balance programme to reduce the risk of falls which can have quite nasty consequences. It should also help take pressure off our local NHS services.

“I would encourage as many eligible people as possible to sign up for the classes available and benefit from the many advantages.”
