Staff and residents at a Rothley care home, Mountview, are inviting community members over 65-years-old to their new fitness session, Mountview Motivator.
For just £3 between 10:00-11:00 every Friday morning, people over the age of 65 are welcome to one hour of chair exercise, fitness and nutrition advice and healthy refreshments with the care home’s residents.
The Home Manager at Mountview, Stacie Weaver, said ‘It’s really important to us that our residents and neighbours have access to new and fun ways to keep fit, make friends and have a laugh.’
When local community member, Patricia Chapman, heard about Mountview Motivator, she decided to give the session a try.
Since then, Patricia has taken part in several events at Mountview and booked a respite stay in the home. She said ‘I really enjoy the fitness class at Mountview it’s very enjoyable’.
88-year-old Betty Allen, a resident at Mountview, also enjoys keeping fit with Mountview Motivator. She said, ‘It’s ‘Ideal’ to have an exercise class for us older ones. It’s not too strenuous and we also have a good laugh which is important as well. It’s a lovely way to meet our neighbours.’
The Mountview Motivator class is lead by Nicola White from Move it Mobility, who deliver a range of activities to care homes, schools and nurseries. Nicola said,
‘I’ve been coming to Mountview for three years now. I have fun every time and the residents enjoy the health benefits of fitness classes.
‘It’s so nice to see so many people get involved and becoming friends with each other. Mountview is the perfect place to visit for a good cup of tea!’
