Free seated exercise class from Able2B

Able2B are offering a free opportunity for people in care homes and supported living to ‘box’ alongside a former European Champion and have some fun at the same time!

Able2B is a not-for-profit organisation providing fitness opportunities to people with learning and physical disabilities. 

Since the start of the Covid isolation they have become ‘virtual’ offering a daily online adapted class Able2B@Home, using the platform zoom (which can be downloaded to any computer, phone or tablet for free).

As they are gaining experience in this method of delivering classes, they would like to trial a virtual online class specifically for those people in care homes and supported living. The aim to provide something different, some physical exercise that all can get involved in, and also a sense of community spirit by coming together with other care homes to participate in the class. Whilst most homes need to shield and not allow external people in, this is a rare opportunity to deliver expert, adapted and appropriate, fun class to your residents, to enable them if nothing else, just to see a different face/group of people at this difficult time, even if they don’t completely join in.

They aim to trial a seated exercise class adapted specifically for this group using boxercise methods on Wednesday 29th April at 10am. The class will be 30 mins long and run by Jon Thaxton, former British and European Boxing Champion, who is experienced, engaging and has a unique ability to give everyone a sense of achievement with his classes whatever their ability.

As a care home you can chose for either the whole care home to join in together if you can connect to a TV screen or invite residents to join in individually if they have a device (details on how to use zoom are attached). Everyone participating just needs a chair to sit on and no other equipment and the class will be targeted towards those with limited physical ability, including severe restrictions.

To join follow the attached instructions to join Zoom and then use the code below to join the session at 10am on Wednesday
