Over 50s exercise class in Bristol
Staying active in your 50s and beyond can be the best gift you can give to yourself. Exercise can enhance your energy levels, keep you at a healthy weight, and even possibly reduce some of the symptoms associated with ageing. Exercise can be good for your brain and emotional state as well as your body.
In this class, you will build on aerobic strength, stability, stamina and balance through a warm up, a body weight circuit followed by core strength exercises and then stretching in a time efficient and effective workout for over 50s. Different options for each exercise are offered and reiterated often. We recognise that at this age there is a huge range of fitness capabilities. We encourage all to work to a level where fitness can be improved or maintained to help combat the natural ageing process.

I have never attended an online class before, how do I do it?
Before you book and pay for a class or membership, you’ll simply need to register and create a Greenway Centre account.
You can either purchase an ALL-IN! Membership and attend as many classes as you like or pay for classes individually. Once you have booked into a class please read the following tips to help you to have a smooth experience.
Once you have booked a class you will receive an email with a link to the class. Each group fitness class email link is individual to the class and can only be used to access one class.
If you are booking lots of classes check you have the exact link.
You should not be asked for a passcode as this is embedded in the link. If you are asked for a passcode it is likely you have the wrong link, check and click again.
At busy times you may need to click the link a few times so it is good to come in 5 minutes before the class starts to avoid the last minute rush.
Once in check you have your sound and video on. These are small icons and on most devices found on the left hand bottom corner of the screen. If they have a red line through them they are off, click once and they should come on.
Make sure your device volume is unmuted and turned up or use an external speaker for improved sound.
Once the class has started it is difficult for the instructor to help you so ring us on 0117 9503335.

Becky. Personal trainer
I’m the Greenway Gym Fitness Team Leader. As a level 4 Group Exercise Specialist I really enjoy creating classes that attract a range of abilities and ages. I’m passionate about the sense of community that is created through exercise and love seeing new faces in my classes. I’m proud of the gym we have created at the Greenway Centre, our kit is brand new and we have everything anyone needs to achieve their fitness goals. I absolutely love teaching Qigong and Pilates and I look forward to seeing you in a class soon.
Online Forever Active classes
Here’s what our customers say about our online classes:
“The class gives weekdays a focus otherwise I am not sure I would be so keen to get up each morning. I find the classes are great for keeping my body moving and a way of extending my physical abilities. I enjoy meeting everyone for a chat/update before the class starts and we have become friends over the shared weeks”.
