Older people's sports activities
Eden Active Fit 4 All
The Eden Active Fit 4 All pilot project has started with 10 weekly sessions. These are designed to encourage older people to enjoy becoming more active. These are in friendly, sociable settings in local communities. All 10 of the weekly pilot sessions are free. They offer a range of activities, refreshments and the chance to chat. Sessions are informal. You can do as much or as little as you like. Even if you just want to come along and see what the sessions are all about first. You don't have to come along each week, just for the weeks which suit you.
What to wear to activity sessions
You need to wear clothes and shoes that you will be comfortable in when taking part in gentle exercise.
We suggest you tell your doctor before you start doing any physical activity. This is especially so if you suffer from a medical condition, or have been inactive for lengthy periods.
