Maintain an independent active lifestyle through exercise

EXTEND Exercise offers Training for Teachers who would like to be able to design Exercise to Music physical activity programmes or to offer Chair Based Exercise classes for older adults and disabled people .

EXTEND Exercise Teachers provide Exercise To Music Classes and Chair Based Exercise Classes throughout the UK. Our mission is to promote health, increase mobility and independence, improve strength, co-ordination and balance and to counteract loneliness and isolation.

We are always looking for more teachers to join our organisation and support the delivery of exercise sessions for the older person and those with a disability of any age. For further information about training courses and how to become an EXTEND Exercise teacher please visit our Courses section. If you are interested in making a donation or supporting EXTEND Exercise in other ways please read our section on Sponsorship and Fundraising.

Are you looking for an exercise class, but the usual active class is not suitable. Then why not try an EXTEND Exercise class? Please read our section on Classes.


Ron Holpin

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Ron Holpin, Vice President, past Company Secretary and dedicated supporter of EXTEND.


Many EXTEND teachers will know that Ron and Judy ran EXTEND from their home for many years until the charity was in a position to set up in the office at Place Farm. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to them both. Thank you Ron and Judy. Ron will be remembered for his wit, sense of humour, very clearly expressed opinions and as a quintessential gentleman. Our sincere sympathy goes to Judy and family.


The funeral will be at West Herts Crematorium in Garston (near Watford).
The Little Chapel at 2.20p.m. on Thursday 26th April and afterwards at the Swan Public House in Wheathampstead.
Only family flowers - donations to the RNLI. Please see the link blow for further information.
