Trying new, fun exercises

David's story

I enjoy telling my friends about my achievements as I am proud that I am doing this at my age.

My name is David, I am 78 years old and live in my own flat in Fishponds. I have lived there for over 19 years.

Following a series of falls, my support team contacted the O.T for advice around my mobility. They recommended exercises to improve my core strength and balance.

I now go to The Avon Riding Centre and have been riding a robotic horse. I can now ride without holding the reins and am practicing riding without stirrups. Eventually I hope to ride a real horse.

This is an opportunity to try new fun exercises. I have also started visiting the gym on a regular basis.
