How fit do I need to be?

The class is suitable for all participants from beginners to advanced, as all exercises can be modified by each participant at any time and or the class instructor whenever required. If you are coming back from a long break, injury, or illness simply enjoy extra breaks between movements or reduce repetitions or workloads to ensure you stay within a comfortable heart rate workout zone.

What do I need to bring or wear?

Participants are encouraged to wear a pair of walking/jogging shoes, shorts, pants or leggings with a T-shirt on top. Its best to have layers according to the weather conditions then you can take them off as you warm up during the class. A towel and drink bottle are also always a must requirement.

How often should I do an Active Movers class?

When first starting out we recommend a minimum of two classes per week advancing to three with preferable rest days in between. Older adults who are very fit and active will find they have the capability to participate in a Pryme Movers class everyday but we recommend variety in class choices to keep their exercise routines and environments varied, stimulating and fun.
