Health and Fitness for Active Aging
This has been one of our key driving principles since we first formed in 2006, when our founding organisations – The Medau Society, FLexercise, and the Keep Fit Association (KFA) – joined forces to form an umbrella body for exercise, movement and dance. Our founder organisations are some of the most established experts in group exercise offering a range of exercises suitable for all ages, particularly older adults looking for a challenging yet safe and fun exercise experience.
