Steady As You Go

Strength and Balance Falls Prevention Exercise Class

Steady As You Go© is a unique community-based falls prevention programme using peer leaders and a central coordinator. 1-hour long classes are held each week for 65+ year olds. The exercises are designed to improve balance, leg strength, general fitness, and well-being.

Common activities such as walking, gardening and bowls may not maintain the leg strength and balance specific to preventing falls. Participants begin with a warmup in a chair followed by standing exercises, walking exercises, and ending with a warm down in a chair. A range of light ankle weights can be used for the leg strengthening exercises, and all participants are encouraged to work at it.
