The ‘Ageless Thanet Feelgood Factory’ is the latest addition to the Ageless Thanet Project. A collaboration between Social Enterprise Kent and Your Leisure, made possible through Big Lottery Funding as part of the ‘Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better’ programme, the ‘Ageless Thanet Feelgood Factory’ is a community space where older people can get fit, improve their physical and mental wellbeing, meet new people and make new friendships.
A key component of the Ageless Thanet Feelgood Factory is our brand new Toning Suite. This offers people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to exercise their whole body on a series of state-of-the-art Toning Tables. This equipment is power-assisted, and designed to achieve maximum results with minimum effort. Due to it being low-impact exercise, it is ideal for people with conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, reduced mobility or any other movement limiting condition. With Your Leisure’s first Toning Suite in Ramsgate already a runaway success, here is what two current members have to say:
“Since starting I feel fitter and more toned, I really enjoy my daily dose of toning, and also my daily dose of chat and laughter with the new friends I have made”
“Thanks to the toning tables my confidence is returning, and I hope in the next year I will be walking freely and with complete confidence”
As well as a fully equipped Toning Suite, this truly is a community venue with a variety spaces which will be used in a number of ways. Community groups, clubs and any organisations working with, helping and supporting older people are being invited to use this fantastic community venue to hold any number of events and activities, whether they be one-offs or ongoing.
The Grand Opening is taking place on Thursday 20th April 11am-4pm, and the public are being invited to come along, find out more and try out this exciting new facility. As part of this Grand opening event, Your Leisure (as part of Ageless Thanet) are offering all members of the public a free 28 day, no obligation trial membership.
