The ‘Stronger for Longer’ campaign has been designed by Cambridgeshire County Council and CPFT to encourage older people (particularly women 70-79 years old) to take up strength and balance exercises twice a week to reduce their risk of falling and keep them doing the things they enjoy.

The campaign will launch on the 1st October and run for the next 3 months.

Strength and balance classes help local lady stay stronger for longer

A major new strength and balance campaign is launching this International Older People’s day to help people in Cambridgeshire stay stronger for longer.

Jill Smith, who lives in Cambridge, started going to strength and balance classes about two years ago as part of her rehabilitation after a heart transplant.

The 66-year-old is now reaping the rewards of regular exercise and can do the things she enjoys again.

“Strength and balance classes have particularly helped me with building up strength in my arms following my heart transplant,” said Jill. “I wasn’t able to use them after the operation. The exercises have helped me gradually build back up my strength and it’s now easier to do things like shopping and carrying bags.

“I can do daily tasks like vacuuming and things at home that were really difficult before. I used to take for granted things like being able to get up from the floor but after my operation this was a problem. However this no longer fazes me – if I get down I know I can get up again and that’s thanks to Sabrina the trainer at my strength & balance class.”

 

Simple strength and balance exercises twice a week are proven to keep you stronger for longer so you can keep independent and enjoying the great things in life, whether it’s playing with grandchildren, shopping, socialising with friends or gardening.
