Active Age Chair Classes- Our active age chair classes promote exercise among older people within the community. All classes are tailored to the needs of the attendees and anyone can participate irrespective of their level of ability or physical health. The classes are 30 minutes long. They are supported with classical and nostalgic music to create an uplifting atmosphere for participants.

The overall aim is to have a positive physical, social and psychological impact for members of our community.

The exercise classes are instructed by an ITEC certified Personal Trainer, Lorraine O’Donnell, where her main focus is on preventative health for all community members. Having worked as a Cardiac CNS, another level of commitment is brought to the community with the aim of encouraging members to keep healthy and to reduce triggers for hospital admissions which become more common as we age. For example, increasing balance and co-ordination ability can reduce falls which are a very common cause of admission to hospitals and rehab facilities which in turn, can have life altering effects for people.

As per covid restrictions, classes are kept to a maximum of 15 people and are held outdoors with the chairs placed 2 metres apart from each other.

The classes are free and are currently held every Thursday at 3pm at Drumhowan GAA club.

Booking is essential in order to keep within covid guidelines. 083 8194888.
