So, what have MOVEability classes done for me? Prior to the first lockdown, I attended for 2 aqua aerobics classes each week and a Steady Steps class (to help with balance etc in the way that the zoom classes do). During lockdown, my mobility issues did not allow for me to take a daily walk. My range of movement gradually diminished as all my joints started to stiffen. The initial class through Get Berkshire Active gradually brought back some of the movement I’d lost. The addition of Dancercise has brought further benefit.
My stamina has greatly improved; I noticed when I restarted aqua aerobics that I did not get hot and breathless – although others around me were saying what a hard workout it was. My core strength has greatly improved too. I feel better in myself. The classes are great fun. There is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and although we’re zooming, there is a feeling of community and belonging. Thank you MOVEability for bringing back some normality and providing a lot of fun in that process – as well as improving fitness and stamina.
