never2old exercise programme

Our never2old exercise programme is for people aged 60 and over.

We will guide your exercise experience with a programme to cater for your individual needs. We offer:

  • Exercise sessions: gym-based programme plus optional group classes
  • Sports events and team games like indoor bowls, table tennis and badminton
  • Seminars on topics like nutrition, fall prevention, safety in the home and pelvic floor dysfunction.

We assess your fitness and help you set goals

Before you start your training programme with never2old, we’ll gather information about your current health, your personal fitness goals and your physical constitution. We’ll do this using health questionnaires and functional assessments which measure things like your strength, flexibility and balance.

These assessments are useful for tracking your progress and setting goals.

We offer daily never2old sessions in our weights room. During each one-hour session, you’ll complete your individualised exercise programme. You can also take part in optional group exercise classes and activities during your session.

Your exercise programme

The intensity and difficulty levels of each programme are adjusted to your ability. We show you each exercise and give you advice and help during the session.

Exercises focus on:

  • Resistance training: to improve muscle mass, strength and functional fitness – keeping you fit to carry out everyday activities
  • Balance exercises: to help you avoid falls, improve your gait and give you confidence in daily and routine activities
  • Flexibility training: to increase your joints’ range of motion, and help balance and mobility
  • Cardio training: to maintain efficient heart and lung function for any sustained activity.

Optional group exercise classes

Our optional small group exercise classes run throughout the main session and include:

  • Balance
  • Pilates
  • Resistance bands
  • Spin
  • Step
  • Swiss ball
  • Yoga
A class runs for 20 minutes. You can choose to take part in them, or continue your own training programme or join other group activities that may be happening.
