Benefits of Women's Wellness Class

Increased Muscle Mass

Muscle mass begins to reduce from 30 years of age but we lose 1% muscle mass from 50 years of age onwards.

Increased Bone Mass/Reduction in Bone Loss

Women’s bone mass is at it’s peak in our late 20s and slowly reduces from 30. The most rapid loss is on average, a 3 year period from 1 year before the final period to 2 years post-menopausal

Impact, strength training and multidirection load promotes bone health

Improved Balance

Our balance reduces with age, injury and immobility but can improve with specific exercise training

Improvement in Pelvic Floor Function

The pelvic floor muscles, like the other muscle groups weaken with age. They are also affected by childbirth, genetics, menopause and other factors eg our weight, constipation and exercise.

 To have healthy pelvic floor muscles we need to contract and relax them correctly, in a co-ordinated way and functionally.

Improved Self Confidence

Incontinence(urinary, faecal and wind), pelvic floor prolapse and being unfit and overweight can make us feel underconfident.

Doing modified exercise with like minded, nonjudgemental people, can improve self-esteem, reduce social embarrassment and improve activities of daily living

Improved Fitness

The British heart foundation statistics Jan 2024 estimate that in the UK more than half of us will get a heart or circulatory condition in our lifetime.

Around twice as many people are living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK than with cancer and Alzheimer’s disease combined.

Being physically active can reduce the risk of developing heart and circulatory diseases by as much as 35 per cent

Improved Sleep

Research suggests women who exercise more have better and longer sleep
