Older people in Cambridgeshire are being encouraged to take part in fitness classes as a way to prevent falls.
Statistics show that one in three over 65s will have a fall in their home.
The County Council says its 'Stronger for Longer 'campaign will help people improve their core strength and balance.
Research shows that group and home exercise programmes can reduce the rate of falls by 29 per cent and 32 per cent respectively.
Falls are one of the most common causes of accidental death in the population aged 75 and over in the UK.
The estimated cost of falls and fractures in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in 2017 to health and social care was thought to be £85 million.
