Building strength while having fun is all part of the program for Tom Scott. He talks to us about living by his motto: 'try to stand more than you sit'.
“As I’ve begun to mature, I’ve seen the benefits of movement, mobility and balance for people in their later years,” Tom, who has more than 10 years of experience as an instructor, says.
Outside of attending classes Tom suggests using the space and objects around you to exercise.
For instance: “using the kitchen bench to chest press or a wall to chair sit.”
Or try raising yourself from a chair without using your hands. "Initially, it may be difficult, but persistence will get you there,” he says.
Of course, if you come along to Tom's classes you can learn all these handy tricks to building strength.
“Hopefully if you join my class, we’ll have a lot of fun but also use each muscle in our bodies. Starting from the calves and working our way up. You’ll certainly gain strength over time, and, with strength, you'll gain confidence in your mobility.”
Join Strength Exercise on Tuesdays at 1.45pm or Wednesdays at 10.15am.
