Keeping on moving at The Gap in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 20th Jan, 2020   0

ADULTS taking part in a fitness class in Warwick are proving age is just a number.

The Keep Moving class at The Gap Community Centre on Spinney Hill aims to keep those over the age of 55 fit and healthy.

The weekly class has exercises to help with circulation, strength, flexibility and brain health. This includes gentle dance moves to 60s and 70s music, chair yoga, neurological routines and acupressure tapping.

Some of its regular attendees say they look forward to the group, which runs from 9.30am to 10.30am every Tuesday.




Marjorie Watson, aged 88 said: “The most important thing about the class is you meet people and it gives you a reason to get out of bed in the morning. I notice if I don’t come.”

Fitness instructor Karina Karamian says those who attend the class improve over time.


She said: “As well as physical fitness, the classes are challenging brain activity, which is helping the older adults stay fit and active to be able to look after themselves. I can see their improvement week to week.

“We don’t take it too seriously and often have a giggle.”

Classes cost £5 including a hot drink in The Gap cafe after the session.
