Health and Wellbeing for Active Older Adults and Those Returning to Fitness

by Editorial Team

Anne Little Fitness offers you a range of fitness classes in the Helmsley area that aim to help older adults and those wanting to get back to fitness keep active while having fun.

Exercise without worries

Anne says: “I love helping people become more active and prolong health and wellbeing in later life. Although I can teach all groups, I specialise in exercise for older adults and returners to fitness”.

With over 30 years experience as an exercise practitioner, Anne brings a wealth of skills to every class. She has meticulously adapted her exercise programmes, so everyone who joins will benefit not just from the exercise but also from her specialist knowledge and experience.

Besides teaching, Anne has also lectured and researched into physical activity for health, so you’ll be incapable hands when it comes to starting your fitness journey and keeping fit as an older adult. She’ll ensure the exercise is right for you.

Do you want to loosen up? Feel stronger? Improve your balance and feel fitter?

Clinical Pilates is an incredible form of exercise for older adults. It can help alleviate common problems, including hip back and knee pain, through stretching and strengthening.

And when it comes to ZUMBA Gold, Anne explains: “It’s a lovely form of dance exercise for older adults and returners to fitness. A great way to burn calories. Class members describe it as exercise in disguise!”

With Anne’s expertise, she can help everyone—no matter their age—to reach their goal. Unlike most general fitness classes, Anne’s classes are limited to small numbers which allow time for one-to-one tuition and attention. Safe distancing in classes helps keep them virus-safe too! Anne can tailor exercises for everyone’s abilities and needs.

A welcoming and friendly environment

“I want everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable. I like to create a space that’s friendly and sociable, where people can come to not only exercise but have fun too,” Anne explains. “Classes are designed to be a focal point for people to gather, catch up and improve fitness levels together. There’s no pressure—it’s a laid back atmosphere where you can enjoy exercising with a group of like-minded people.”

Anne also teaches chair-based ZUMBA for older adults with limited movement and is a Breathworks accredited Mindfulness for Health tutor. She is an authorised provider of chair-based movement classes for the British Lung Foundation and the Richmond Group of Charities.
