Simple Movements Improve Life Every Day

Join in...feel the benefits of social, friendly and fun exercise at your own pace!

SMILE is a new low impact and gentle exercise concept developed by Life Leisure. The programme provides a fun, engaging and adaptable exercise and physical activity sessions for older adults and those with long term health conditions or disabilities to help improve physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Whether an individual can only take part sitting on a chair or they feel comfortable enough to stand up and exercise – we believe the SMILE programme offers alternatives that are beneficial for everyone and taking part will improve a participant's quality of life.
