Paracise - Blackburn Young at Heart
Blackburn Young at Heart want to deliver a new weekly 45 minute physical activity session called 'Paracise. The sessions will be tailored to meet the needs of groups members, take place over 34 weeks and be delivered by a qualified Excite coach.
The project will benefit the members of the group in a number of ways;
- It will improve overall physical and mental wellbeing of participants
- It will help to reduce feelings of social isolation and loneliness
- Participation in the sessions will help to lower participants risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression and dementia
- The exercises that participants will take part in will help them to remain active and independent into their old age
The sessions will take place in the Blackburn Partnership Centre.
The sessions will be tailored to the needs of members of Blackburn Young at Heart.
