Getting active with MITS
Back in March 2018, ACN SA Programme Manager Nicole Jennings ran a Pilates session for the MITS over 50s group in Mitchells Plain. Nicole was invited to come and participate in a community session ran by Keith Meyer from MITS which is a local sports initiative focussing on helping older members of the community to get fit and active. The programme is a vital service for local people, giving them the opportunity to access services that they normally would not able to, providing vital mental and physical health support in a vibrant fun atmosphere. The group were so welcoming and really enjoyed Nicole's pilates session as many had never tried it before. ACN SA's aim is to support the programme by training up local people to be able to run the sessions and provide access into group exercise qualifications via partner eta college.
