About the Wellbalanced Strength & Balance Programme

Introduction to the Wellbalanced Programme

As we get older, muscles naturally start to lose strength. Everyday tasks such as rising from a chair or walking outside alone, can become more of a challenge.  Strength and balance classes, such as the Wellbalanced programme can help you to keep strong and steady and help prevent a fall.

Wellbalanced offers low cost exercise courses, at the right level for you, for anyone who wants to feel more steady and confident on their feet.

A Wellbalanced course may be suitable for you, if you…

  • are feeling less steady on your feet
  • are finding it harder to rise from a chair or to use the stairs
  • have been referred by a GP, Healthcare Worker or other professional

Our Wellbalanced instructors are qualified and experienced in Postural Stability and Falls Prevention.

Since the start of the Coronavirus Pandemic we have transformed our service to ensure we can continue to support you to improve your strength & balance. We now offer you the following support options;

Initial One to One Consultation

When you have been referred, we will arrange a one to one appointment with you to discuss your needs. This an opportunity for you to find out more and ask any questions you may have. The appointment will either take place on a telephone call or online if you have internet access. A face to face meeting will be arranged once the current restrictions allow.

Home Support

Receive a home exercise pack, including exercise leaflets and a resistance band. You will be assigned a Postural Stability Instructor who will support you with a weekly call to discuss your exercise and provide you with support & motivation. Your instructor will also re-assess you at 12 and 24 weeks to make sure you are keeping on track.

Online Support

We will provide you with a home support pack, access to online Wellbalanced classes, useful downloads and an online coffee morning. You will be re-assessed at 12 and 24 weeks at an online one to one meeting with your postural stability instructor.

Community Classes

These are currently suspended and will resume once Government guidelines permit us to meet again in small groups. Classes usually take place in East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Hassocks, Shoreham & Worthing.

Follow on Classes

Once you have completed the 24 week funded programme, we offer follow on classes to help you continue to improve your strength & balance. Details of these can be found on our website www.ahswellbeing.co.uk

Virtual Coffee Morning

We hold a monthly coffee morning on the last Friday of each month. If you would like to join the session please email us at info@wellbalancedprogramme.co.uk or inform your Postural Stability instructor. We look forward to seeing you!

“You have given me techniques which I can practice on a daily basis. I initially thought, oh good what I doing this for but have found it informative, absolutely super and now I go to other classes and exercise at home daily. The classes have encouraged me to get out and get active. I feel really positive and would like to say thank you.” John Davies, 65 years.

Don’t just take our word for it
