Get the most out of your life!

Are you recovering from an injury? Is getting older getting you down? Are you feeling imprisoned by your home or by pain? Are you hampered by limited range of movement? Do you get fatigued easily? Do you feel you have run out of options and are missing out on being active and independent?

When it comes to aging you shouldn’t have to endure joint pain and muscle weakness. When it comes to recovering, from injury, staying at home is NOT the only option.

SwingFit4All classes could quickly improve your mobility and improve your muscle strength and bone density. This will improve how you feel day to day and allow you to enjoy getting out and socializing once again. Whether you are sixty or over eighty years of age, SwingFit4All is an incredible way to get the most out of your life once again!

SwingFit4All is a physical activity program using an exercise ring that passively vibrates to stimulate nerves and blood vessels. Whether the program is a bespoke routine or in exercise to music classes the unique design of the SwingFit4All rings delivers surprising benefits.

The SwingFit4All regime and vision

The SwingFit4All system is a general fitness and wellness regime that improves balance, co-ordination and strength with the use of light weight exercise rings that stimulate circulation through vibration.

Targeted exercises can improve endurance or the range of movement. Moderate or vigorous exercises can work to build muscles and improve bone density as well as reducing or controlling weight. When the rings are in contact with the body, the vibrations created by rocking the rings back and forth is both soothing and therapeutic and can offer relief to aches and pains as well as helping relieve the symptoms of headaches and constipation.

The rings consist of 4 steel balls running within a corrugated plastic tube. As the rings are swung the balls move within the tube, generating vibrations that travel up the arms, to stimulate blood flow and connective tissues. A great deal of attention was given to the frequency of the vibration, weight of the rings and the hand grips, so that they are comfortable to use by people of any age.

SwingFit4All was created to address the needs of older people recovering from prolonged stays in hospital where mobility and exercise was limited and resulted in muscle wastage and reduction in range of movement. The program is progressive and something that can be done at home with friends and family or in groups. Albeit that it was created for rehabilitation its use for older people can be applied to young children too as the rings are light weight.

 

Classes

SwingFit4All classes accommodate all age groups and are delivered in the community.

Tailored exercise classes are delivered as aerobics classes, or to walking groups, or as chair- (or even bed-) based routines for older adults and disabled people.

Within the care home environment residents and staff can all get involved, to get fitter, and everyone is encouraged to participate two or three times a week to improve energy levels, mobility and balance as well as helping with weight management. Carers and visitors too are encouraged to get involved when they visit so they can feel the benefits everyone else is experiencing and encourage their loved ones. Seeing the improvements week on week helps raise spirits.
