Activ8 boosts fitness for adults with disabilities

 

Activ8 Adults, a new weekly multi-activity session, is giving people with a disability the chance to keep fit.

The number of people taking part has grown since the first session was held at the Barony Sports Complex in Nantwich on Thursday, February 12.

The multi-activity session, organised by Everybody Sport and Recreation in partnership with Cheshire East Council, includes a variety of activities such as cycling, bowling, tennis and boccia using the outdoor facilities as well as the indoor gym.

Andrew Kolker, chairman of Everybody Sport and Recreation said: “Anyone with a disability is welcome to come along and have a go to see if it’s appropriate for them. We have qualified coaches delivering the sports activities and gym instructors to support in the gym.

“The emphasis of the session is on fun, having a go and socialising with other members of the group. Numbers are growing each week.”

Councillor Janet Clowes, Cheshire East’s Cabinet member for care and health in the community, joined a recent Activ8 session to see for herself how it works.

She said: “This is a great way to keep fit with lots of variety and something to suit everyone. I would urge anyone with a disability to give it a try and I am pleased to see that the sessions are gaining in popularity.”

The cost is £3.60 per session or £19 a month when using an Everybody Options Card. For more information about the options card and the Active8 Adult sessions please visit: www.everybody.org.uk  or email andy.molyneux@everybody.org.uk
