Claudine Aherne

Claudine is an exercise specialist, health educator, writer and international speaker. Watch this short video to learn why she founded Vida Wellness:

Claudine is committed to sharing the message that:

  • Much of what we consider to be normal ageing is a result of poor lifestyle choices
  • Successful ageing means staying engaged and active
  • Our lifestyle choices play a much bigger part in determining our health outcomes than our genetics
  • Having a purpose or passion in life is crucial for ageing well

Claudine’s qualifications include:

  • Certified Functional Aging Specialist (Functional Aging Institute)
  • Postural Stability Instructor (a specialist qualification, from Later Life Training, in the provision of therapeutic exercise for reducing the risk of falls).
  • Other qualifications include Exercise Referral, Older Adult Fitness, Chronic Respiratory Disease, Osteoporosis, Chair Based Exercise and Cognitive Fitness Facilitator

Claudine was selected to be a member of the instructor team for the Pro-ACT 65+ trial, a randomised, controlled clinical trial run by University College London Medical School. 

She has spent the last 15 years helping people in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to stay fit and active for longer. Her exercise videos are described as "brilliant, clear and easy to follow".

Claudine is a Volunteer Coordinator with Contact the Elderly, a national charity which transforms the lives of isolated older people with tea, chat and friendship.
