Take Heart support group opens it’s doors to all needing to improve their balance, strength and posture.

Often as we age we develop a range of health problems that effect our balance and ability to get around this can make regular exercise sessions too noisy, too fast or just too much!

So, we’ve developed SIT & BE FIT – mobility scooter and walker friendly, we use chairs or your own scooter or wheel chair to give support while we tone and activate muscles, mobilise and loosen joints and improve postural strength.

If you, or someone you know might benefit from gentle effective exercise based on Pilates and Yoga principles get in touch for a FREE Trial.
Partners and carers are welcome, we meet on Mondays and Fridays with a nice chatty refreshment break between sessions at 11:00. Come for coffee and meet us all.

We are a happy, social bunch, with regular walks, trips and raffles.

Meet People, Have Fun, Make Friends

Around 130 women in Gloucester and 170 in Cheltenham die each year of heart disease it has been revealed.

As the first ever virtual Women’s Room is opened to raise awareness of heart disease in women, the British Heart Foundation is warning that the illness affects women as well as men,

Commonly stereotyped a ‘man’s disease’ more than 310,000 women in the South West of England live with a heart or circulatory condition.

In the South West of England, 7,240 women die each year from heart and circulatory diseases with 170 of those coming from Cheltenham and 130 from Gloucester.

Maureen Talbot, Senior Cardiac Nurse at the BHF, said: “Coronary heart disease kills nearly three times as many women as breast cancer. Yet as a society we continue to prop up the myth that heart problems are just for men. Everything from TV adverts to soap plotlines show men with heart conditions. But it’s incredibly rare to hear about a woman with heart disease.

“As a result women often feel very isolated when they’re diagnosed with a heart condition. We want to shout from the rooftops that if you’re a woman living with heart disease you are not alone. Our Women’s Room can give you the ‘informational hug’ you need and introduce you to other women, just like you.”

Even with supportive family and friends around them, women can feel lonely and afraid when they’re diagnosed with a heart condition.

The BHF’s Women’s Room – an online hub available 24 hours a day – allows women with heart conditions to share their experiences and find support from other women who know exactly what they’re going through in a women-only online forum.

The online hub features stories of real women living with heart disease. It offers practical information to help women adjust to life with a heart condition, such as how to tell colleagues, family and friends about a heart condition, how to deal with work issues, what to do if they’re worried about their finances and how to cope if they feel upset or stressed.

It also includes of information and advice for all women who want to keep their hearts healthy.

The BHF created the online hub in response to feedback from women heart patients and wider research with more than 600 women across the UK.

Women, who are worried or curious about their heart, can visit the BHF’s Women’s Room – an online hub full of practical information and a forum where they can talk to other women, just like them.
