Radio 4 Frontiers Programme

Radio 4The Strong Foundations exercise programme, developed and run by Vida Wellness, has been featured in a BBC Radio 4 science programme.

In this edition of Frontiers, first broadcast on August 18th, 2010, Vivienne Parry hears how new research into muscle wastage is opening up new opportunities and presents startling results from a large-scale study which has seen older peoples’ muscles completely rebuilt through diet and exercise.

The Strong Foundations programme is featured as an example of a leading-edge exercise programme for older adults which focuses on muscle-building (as well as flexibility, power, coordination and balance). The founder of Vida Wellness, Claudine Aherne, is interviewed and class members are featured discussing the classes and the benefits they have experienced from being a part of the Strong Foundations programme.
