for the body
For all ages
and all abilities.
Exercise programmes for all ages and abilities.
Here at Active Rainbow, we offer a number of activities for the body and mind. We provide various classes, training and workshops for all ages and abilities.
Physical fitness is the state of health and well-being and the ability to perform aspects of day-to-day activities. This may become more difficult as we age, but it’s never too late to start a new sport, class, training, or exercise group. We work very closely with Calderdale Council, a number of community groups, charities and schools. Active Rainbow can help get you involved with our activities, or if you do not see what you are looking for, get in touch, and we can signpost you in the right direction.
What we offer
Why should I exercise?
Exercise can help prevent bone loss, even in individuals with osteoporosis. A sedentary lifestyle promotes the loss of bone mass. The feeling of well-being is fundamental to your overall health at any age. It can also help build the muscles surrounding your bones, increase flexibility in the joints, and generally enhance the ability of your muscles, tendons and joints to support and protect the bones.
Children benefit significantly from physical, mental and social activities. This is one of the prerequisites of a healthy lifestyle besides the more evident and essential inclusion of good nutrition and a balanced daily diet.
We should all be looking to take part in physical activity 30 minutes a day for adults and at least about an hour a day for children to help them build healthy bones, and this should include activities that strengthen the muscles.
