If you are looking to try something new, why not come along to our morning or evening Silverfit Cheerleading sessions in Brixton? Sessions are for 45 year olds and over and led by one of the London Cheerleaders, who bring the silver Poms along, it is great fun, with energising  music. Who knows where our Silver Cheerleaders may appear one day?

Cheerleading is good for us all, women and men too– it’s brilliant exercise, strengthening the heart and lungs, reducing risk of heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure and similar health problems. It counts towards Govt. guidelines of 150 minutes of moderate cardio each week, helps to maintain a healthy body weight, thus reducing their risk for Type 2 diabetes and some cancers. It develops core strength, powering every muscle in the body. The occasional jumping or turning around increases bone density, which prevents osteoarthritis – nothing too strenuous.

Cheerleaders are always smiling and looking happy. The teamwork requires cooperation, communication, and regular social interaction – all helping to make friends and enjoy that peer support, reducing the risks or depression and anxiety, and even improving sleep.

Sessions take place every week at the following centres:

Brixton Recreation Centre - Wednesdays from 11.00am – 12noon.

Ferndale Community Sports Centre -  Thursdays from 8pm - 9pm

Sessions cost £1.00 each week.
