Burns Gym: Senior Fitness Heroes!

Meet two brothers Joe and Tony Burns from Glasgow, that provide two weekly exercise sessions for our residents, their workout is structured around reducing the number of falls, improving balance, agility, strength, and mobility. They also target maintaining or improving muscle mass and strive to motivate all residents from various homes who participate in their virtual sessions.

Each of our residents’ follow and carry out the exercises at their own pace and ability. Extra help and support are given by the lifestyles team where required. Exercise is very good for both mental and physical well-being, and improves balance, strength, and mobility. Our residents always look forward to their sessions and love that they can interact with other care homes and the trainers in Scotland.

Residents at Oaklands have been taking part in these amazing classes for almost three years, over that time we have witnessed the huge benefits these exercises have made to our dear residents’ and are so grateful to both Tony and Joe for providing these outstanding classes.

From all of us at Oaklands House Care Centre, we thank you!
