Otago is a muscle strengthening and balance retraining program developed and tested by the New Zealand Falls Prevention Research Group. The idea behind Otago is that muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and reaction time can all be improved to reduce your risk of falling and help make every day activities easier and more enjoyable. The benefits of exercise are plentiful. By participating in this program, you can improve: - Balance - Muscle strength - General fitness - General well-being - Coordination - Walking ability - Ability to do normal daily living activities / chores You will do a mix of seated and standing exercises, with chair support for those who need it. Your first session is FREE and then £5 a week thereafter. Please ensure you either book online the weeks you want to attend or inform instructor directly to avoid disappointment. We are lucky to have Steady and Strong classes all across the borough.

Please talk to your GP about local NHS falls services in your area. For more information about how to prevent a fall, please see the Hampshire County Council Falls Prevention page: https://www.hants.gov.uk/socialcareandhealth/adultsocialcare/falls-prevention We require everyone attending a Get Up and Go activity to complete a short registration form. You only have to do this once so if you have done this already you do not have to complete it again.
