Hi, We're Senior Strength Fitness. Falls Prevention

Specialists Supporting Older Adults in Norfolk

Senior Strength Fitness is a team of advanced exercise professionals that specialise in falls prevention and evidence-based interventions to keep individuals independent and mobile as they move into later years. With a wealth of knowledge and experience exercising individuals with complex health conditions and mobility issues, we offer classes that are suitable for each individuals needs, as well as an environment for people to socialise and support one another as they progress through their well-being journey together.

Our aim is to educate and reduce the risk of falls for the ageing population across Norfolk. We deliver evidence-based strength and balance exercise classes to those aged 50+. 

 

Falls are a major expense for the NHS, and in some parts of the country suitable health pathways and interventions have been set up to reduce these figures. We have witnessed first-hand the devastation and impact falls can have on clients and their loved ones. For the most part, falls can be avoided with simply regaining one's mobility through specific exercises. We have previously worked for Cambridgeshire's falls prevention service delivering home strength and balance exercise programmes, which had proven very effective. 

 

If you have ever experienced a fall, concerned about falling or have simply noticed that your mobility has declined, then please; view our free information, consider our services and call us today to find out more.

Strength & Balance

Our classes replicate the structure of LaterLife Training's Falls Management Exercise Programme (FaME), using a mixture of seated and standing exercises. The purpose of the class is to reduce participant's risk of falls and increase their physical activity levels by exercising several components;

Warm up and mobility

Dynamic endurance

Strength

Balance

Backwards Chaining

Stretching & Flexibility 

Adapted Thai Chi

Personal Training

Our personal training is aimed for clients who are a little frailer or less mobile and not suitable for our exercise classes (at this moment). 

During your initial assessment your trainer will complete with you a multi-factorial falls risk assessment and several mobility test. Following this the trainer will be able to determine an appropriate plan of action consisting of specific exercises to cater for any medical conditions or issues. The trainer may also set you some goals which will aid in reducing your risks of falls (for example, seeing your pharmacist for a medication review).

 

Then once you have reached a suitable level of mobility, the trainer will advise you to join one of our exercise classes.

Falls Talks

Falls prevention talks are free to large groups that are interested in starting an exercise class and can provide a venue for the talk.
