Particularly tailored towards older adults with less mobility, the fitness programme introduces an innovative chair-based fitness programme aimed at enhancing the health and mobility of its residents.

The collaboration, which marks a significant step towards promoting active lifestyles among the elderly, offers a series of gentle, yet effective, exercise classes designed to be performed from the comfort of a chair. These sessions focus on strengthening, flexibility, and mobility, addressing the specific needs of the care home's residents.

"This partnership with Mountside Care Home is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the adaptability and benefits of our exercise programmes for the elderly," said a representative from GFitness. "We believe that maintaining some form of fitness is crucial at any age, and it can often be challenging for those who are less mobile. Our chair-based exercises provide a perfect solution, making fitness accessible and enjoyable for everyone."

The initiative has been met with great enthusiasm from the residents, who look forward to their GFitness sessions as a way to stay active, improve their health, and socialise with friends.
