What is RightStart?

RightStart exercise classes are for older people and those requiring additional support to exercise. The classes are friendly and a great way to meet other people with similar health and fitness concerns.

All classes are designed and taught by specially qualified instructors who will make sure that each activity is safe and meets your physical and medical needs.

If you are looking for a way to be more active and feel healthier but aren’t sure where to start, give one of our RightStart classes a go!
