Active 60 - Monlife

Active 60 Programme

MonLife will join with other Welsh leisure providers to deliver its 60 Plus Fit4Life initiative, made possible thanks to funding from Sport Wales. MonLife’s Active 60 programme offers support for people aged 60 and over to become more physically active through in-person or online classes: including yoga, pilates, tai-chi, gentle exercise and even virtual coffee catch-ups.

The Active 60 plus programme has extended its offer to access the MonLife classes on site as well as attending virtual classes. This is creating a wider community for the Active 60 plus in MonLife.

The first month is FREE for the first 120 people that sign up to the programme and £16 p/m afterwards. Those who sign up will be given equipment packs which include dumbbells, resistant bands and an exercise mat.  To sign up to the programme, please click on the following link.  A MonLife qualified fitness professional will then contact you to ensure that the scheme is appropriate.

Sport Wales CEO Sarah Powell said: “We want people in Wales to have a lifelong enjoyment of sport and by working with partners to help provide additional or supplemented offers that aim to specifically meet the needs of the over 60’s locally we hope that we see even more individuals from this demographic staying or getting active.

“Over the past year we’ve all had to think even more about how we keep ourselves healthy, probably in different ways to what we would have done prior to the coronavirus outbreak.  We know that being physically active is one way to help keep us mentally and physically fit, while providing a brilliant way to connect with others.  So I urge people to take a look through their local authority at the different opportunities that are available to help them do this.”

Councillor Richard John, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for MonLife added: “Our 60 Plus Fit4Life sessions will offer people over the age of 60 the opportunity to become more physically and socially active as we know how important it is to stay well, especially during this difficult time.

“Our committed staff will offer support, advice and guidance every step of the way to help keep up motivation.  We will continue to offer a wide range of digital fitness programmes for people of all ages to keep their minds and bodies active.  We look forward to welcoming the public back to our MonLife leisure facilities when conditions allow.”
