Steady As You Go

Our ‘Steady As You Go’ exercise classes are available around the Wellington region. These classes are designed to improve strength and balance and help prevent a fall. 

Steady as You Go classes improve:

  • Balance and leg strength
  • Flexibility
  • General fitness and wellbeing

And they are a great way to meet new people.

Classes consist of a combination of sitting, standing and walking exercises, and take around an hour.  They are ideal for complete beginners, are ongoing and you can find out how you’ve improved over your first 10 weeks.

Classes are established by one of our staff members with the aim of becoming peer-led at the end of 10 weeks.

Gold coin donation/koha is appreciated. You can find your nearest class below. If you’d like to join a class, come by ten minutes before the class starts. For more information please contact us.

Steady As You Go is an approved strength and balance programme in the Government’s Live Stronger for Longer initiative. Find out more about Live Stronger for Longer here.
