Age Active, which provides health and fitness activities for the over fifties, have
announced they’ve helped over two hundred thousand people to get active since
With over five hundred members, the varied programme of classes to suit different
age groups has been a roaring success for fitness instructors, Suzanne Duraid and
David Schofield, and Dennis Dryden.
Suzanne Duraid, Founder of Age Active, said: “We get lots of newcomers who struggle
to pluck up the courage to attend their first fitness class, but we’re so supportive and
inclusive. Our classes offer a community-feeling, which you can’t get in a gym!”
Member Kath Watson said: “Taking part in group classes every week helps me to keep
fit. Without Age Active, I wouldn’t get out of the house.”
The organisation is entirely self-funded, and classes take place at Victoria Hall in
Sheffield City Centre, located on Chapel Walk
