New health and fitness activities to start soon

Many of you will have already taken part in some of SVI’s fitness activities in the past. We are very pleased to tell you about some new ones starting in the next few weeks. We hope that one or all of them are of interest to you.

Aqua Fitness: fancy keeping fit in the pool?

Join us for light exercise in the therapy pool at the Portway Lifestyle Centre.

A 45 minute a week, 12 week Aqua Fitness programme will be starting on Monday 6 July from 12.30pm to 1.15pm. These sessions will offer you an introduction to Aqua Fitness and light exercise in the therapy pool. Please arrive at the Portway Lifestyle Centre for 12 noon so that you allow enough time to change before going in to the pool. This programme is part funded from SVI’s Health and Wellbeing fund and the cost to you is just £1 per session.

Walk your way to fitness – gentle walking programme

Short 40 minute walks will be taking place on Tuesday lunchtime from the Portway Lifestyle Centre and Wednesday morning from the Deaf Centre. Come along and enjoy the local scenery, such as Dartmouth Park and the Sandwell Valley, and get fit at the same time. Walks are free of charge and all are welcome.
Exercise at the Portway gym

SVI holds gym sessions every Tuesday morning from 10am to 12 noon and Thursday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm at the Portway Lifestyle Centre. Gym buddies are on hand to help and beginners are welcome. It doesn’t matter if you have never been to a gym before, you’ll be supported by our friendly team, it helps to get you fit and its fun as well.

Try it out to see if you like it!

A series of one off taster activity sessions will be taking place over the next few months – most will be held at the Deaf Centre. Come and join us to see how you like activities like yoga for relaxation, laughter yoga, a real stress buster, relaxation and a whole lot more. Sessions are provided by Health for Living and are free of charge, so it is well worth giving them a try.

Would you be interested in weight management and diet advice? If so, please tell us and we will do our best to set a weekly programme up for members.
