Successful launch of our Silverday at AOS

    We had a fantastic morning at the launch of our LSBU Silver Thursday at AOS on Thursday. Eddie Brocklesby joined the Silverfitters for an energetic badminton and a fun cycling session with LSBU Sports Development Manager, Jameelah. Randy is our brand new Silverfit Ambassador that will be helping with all your Silverfit needs and making you feel right at home. The session was a success with laughs had by all.

    New venue and support from the Mayor of London

    Success of Silverfit launches new session at Brockwell Park funded by Lambeth Council & Sport Relief.

    We have had a fantastic year so far at Silverfit with wonderful support from local communities within London. Great feedback from our focus group conducted by LSBU with wonderful testimonies from a numerous amount of our members on how Silverfit has impacted their health and social wellbeing.

    Our numbers have reached a new high of over 100 older people enjoying a happier fitter life with support from councillors and public health officials (more info to follow). We have even gained support from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson regarding a new cycle programme where we utilise the new Barclay cycle scheme for the older generation. Here is what he has to say "Cycling is a fun way to get fit, stay healthy and see more of London and it’s great that  Silverfit are making the most of our bicycles to do just that.”
    The support has been fantastic and we have great news as we launch a brand new Silverfit in Brockwell Park on Tuesday afternoons.
    We will begin our sessions on Tuesday 3rd March from 2pm at Brockwell Hall Cafe. We will be having some special guests at the launch and would love to see all our members there. Activities on offer include Pilates and Nordic Walking which have been two of our most loved activities. We will also be providing Walking Football in late spring with a professional instructor from Millwall FC. In summer we plan to offer swimming in the recently refurbished Brockwell Lido!

    We would like to thank Sport Relief, Fusion Lifestyle and The Lambeth Legacy fund for helping with the development of health & wellbeing programmes for Silverfit.

    The flyer for our newest addition to our Silver Days is below- we hope to see you all there!

    Fantastic results from Burgess Park LSBU Focus Group

    At Silverfit we have been working with London South Bank University to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme with participants in order to improve and extend their opportunities.
    Professor Wendy Couchman at London South Bank University conducted a focus group session with our Silverfitters at Burgess Park.  LSBU wanted to evaluate the progress of our Silver Tuesdays and found that the sessions had gradually grown to 40 members with the average age changing from 61 to 63.

    Participants were wholly enthusiastic about their experience of Silver Tuesdays in Burgess Park, whether they had joined at the start, like one man who had been able to get back into exercise, or more recent participants: ‘It is a wonderful opportunity really’, ‘It’s excellent to have these activities’ .

    There was much praise for the project leader and leaders of different activities: ‘Her enthusiasm is just absolutely brilliant’, ‘I’d like to congratulate the tutors’.

    The social aspects of Silver Tuesdays, including coffee sessions, were seen as important as the exercise by the majority: ‘And the social aspects of it as well, it gets you out to socialise’ A strong message from the group throughout the discussion was that, now they had experienced the positive benefits of Silver Tuesdays, they wanted more choice of activities.
    After such results we are launching Silver Days, a range of fun & fitness sessions throughout the week with a range of activities.

    The next  launch will be on Tuesday 3rd March at Brockwell Park.
