A new interactive way for all ages to keep fit has launched at Bushey Grove Leisure Centre (BGLC).
Those who are not keen on the traditional gym or outdoor sports can get involved in PRAMA, an immersive group exercise concept that uses sound, light, floors and walls to guide movements.
The classes take place in the leisure centres brand new purpose-built PRAMA studio.
BGLS received £100,000 funding through Hertsmere Borough Council’s Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF) which aims to help older people, families, young people, disabled people and those not interested in traditional sports to engage with new ways of getting active.
Councillor Dr Harvey, Portfolio Holder for planning said: “By investing in facilities such as this, we are investing in the future resilience of our local communities.
“If we can get more people active, especially our older and younger generations, and families, we can help take some pressure off existing services such as GP surgeries, hospitals and other healthcare providers, and help our population to stay fit and healthy for longer.
“As this is very much a group exercise, there is also a social element involved, which means it has benefits for people’s mental as well as physical health, helping tackle loneliness or isolation.
“But on top of everything else, the new PRAMA facility is fun and it’s a really exciting way of getting fit. I would recommend it to anyone.”
Bridget Kirwan, centre manager at Bushey Grove Leisure Centre said: “We are so excited to have launched PRAMA at Bushey Grove, with a range of classes for adults, families and children, helping to get all age groups active, whatever their fitness ability.”
