Kilkenny recreation and sport partnership has announced that it will be working with Niamh Spratt, a lecturer of sport and exercise science at Carlow Institute of Technology. The collaboration will see the introduction of low cost circuit classes designed specifically for those older adults who have limited mobility

The classes will take place in The Watershed, Kilkenny. on Thursdays from April 27 to June 1 at 11 am.There is a special introductory offer of six weeks for €20. Book you place on https://www.iregister.ie/v2/KRSP/, phone 056 7794991 or turn up to the first class

Circuit training is a perfect introduction to cardiovascular and strength training, which benefits heart health and cholesterol levels as well as keeping your bones and muscles strong, making daily activities easier and preventing falls.

Caitriona Corr, Sports Development Officer with Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership said “this is a community initiative that has the potential to grow, we would love to see the hall full of Older Adults taking part and enjoying this and similar classes in Kilkenny”.
