New exercise workouts for seniors

Posted: Thu, 26 Jul 2012 10:25

A NEW weekly exercise class for seniors in the Hinckley & Bosworth area is due to launch next month, inspired by the popular Zumba latin dance fitness programme.

Called Zumba Plus, the gentle workouts will be held every Friday from 11.15am to 12noon at the Westfield Community Centre in Rosemary Way, Hinckley, starting on Friday 3 August. Each session costs £3.00.

Organised by Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland, with support from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and the Big Lottery Fund, the workouts are suitable for older people at all levels of fitness.

"Experience with dance is not required as moves are broken down in a slow and manageable manner,"

said Emma Hopkins, Development Co-ordinator with Age UK.

"The aim is for those taking part to move a little while having a lot of fun, even if they don't perform each move perfectly."
