Jenny has lived in Mile End since 1992, as a retired physiotherapist she is passionate about supporting older people with keeping fit. Always a keen walker, at 76 years of age Jenny prefers to walk rather than use her car when possible and always gets the bus into town.
In 2010 she launched “Jenny’s exercise class” held at the Lorraine George School of Dance at 305 Mile End Road. The group meets every Tuesday from 10.00 to 11.00 and has gone from strength to strength, and is now regularly attended by up to 20 people aged 60 to 90 every week. The class consist of a combination of sitting and standing exercises, dance and games. It focuses on improving both cardio-vascular fitness and balance. Jenny says “The group is very social and great fun, we always have a laugh and it provides an all-over workout for both mind and body” The classes cost £5.00 per session or £4.00 if booked in a block. Jenny is planning to start an additional beginners group from 11.00 to 12.00 on Thursdays so if you are interested in either session please call Jenny to find out more
Jenny is also interested in taking up “Walking Football” and plans to check out the group for men and women over 50 run by Colchester United.
