Fitness classes for over 60
Why not join a fitness class for over 60’s at Vitality Hub. Vitality Hub started when the founder Rosaria Barreto realised that there was not anyone with the relevant knowledge and understanding of a variety of health conditions to support her Grandma (Bibi) who has dementia, high blood pressure and musculoskeletal conditions. Vitality Hub started by providing one to one and group exercise classes for a variety of individuals with health conditions and grew to focus on over 60's and people with health conditions such as COPD, Arthritis and Back Injury.
Over time we realised that many of the older adults utilising Vitality Hub services didn't have one chronic health condition but had a variety which meant that sessions had to be adapted. We also realised that many of our users were isolated due to their conditions and so we started to increase the social opportunities and aspects of our sessions ensuring that during each session we take the time to care and talk to our users. As a result we now run a wide variety of bespoke one to one and group programmes which include social exercise focused on mobility, strength, balance coordination and lung health development across the UK both online and face to face.
We offer a diverse range of classes, get in touch to find out more!
Our plans for gentle exercise classes for seniors
The aims of our gentle exercise classes for seniors are to increase physical ability to improve quality of life as we age. Exercise is medicine and can significantly affect what you can and cannot do with your body. We also aim to facilitate social environments to tackle loneliness in later life through engaging exercise classes and further to this offer enjoyable exercise! We haven't done our job properly if you get bored or did not enjoy it.
Exercise plays such an essential role in keeping healthy physically and mentally. Suppose you have a family member or friend that needs support directly from home but still needs to keep their body and brain active. You have come to the right place!
Our gentle exercises classes are curated essentially for everyone who is 60 plus. We specialise in over 60's fitness. We can tailor personal training appropriately, target fitness classes and offer exercise for rehabilitation in addition to health and well-being plans. You can read below what we include in our Gentle Exercise classes for seniors.
What we offer in exercise classes for over 60's
Our exercise classes for over 60's are all about having fun whilst exercising and getting the chance to socialise with others. Each class is tailored to the group, so we can't share specifics because we create tailored group classes that consider physical, psychological, and preferential needs of the participants.
Some examples of our services:
Exercise classes for wheelchair users
Personalised exercise for people using mental health services
Fitness classes for over 60
One to One personalised programmes for older adults
One to One bespoke exercise session for people with disabilities
Personalised programmes for specific groups
We work with a variety of groups such as mental health clinics, rehabilitation trusts, disability charities and more!
One to one and exercise classes for these groups such as wheelchair users are a great way to maintain physical ability and improve self-confidence. The sessions are designed to prevent muscle deterioration, avoid movement pathway degeneration and instigate regular muscle memory stimulation. We have worked with the centre for independent living Kent on a 6 month project understanding the needs of wheelchair users when it comes to exercise so we have also put together a community interest company called ABLTY, for people who want to do online exercise.

Personalised exercise for people using mental health services and hospitals are a great chance to introduce service users to new forms of activity that can facilitate their recovery process. We offer bespoke group classes that consider the psychological state of mind of the group which significantly impact mood brightness, stimulate positive endorphins, and encourage teamwork.

"I am rather an ancient old lady with severe mobility problems which keeps me very sedentary most of the time. My family felt I needed to use what muscles I have left more frequently which is what inspired me to seek some help. Rosie has done just that - a charming, smiley, very qualified young lady who is a delight to be with. Inspiring whilst instilling some discipline which I badly need and working me hard in such a friendly way."
