Strength for Life for Older Adults
Designer for senior members of our community, Strength for Life is a weekly program that is run by a trained and qualified fitness professional. Each venue is approved by COTA (Council on the Ageing) who oversee the 'Strength for Life' program across the state.
Strength for Life helps people over 50 years of age to improve balance and increase fitness. It is a program which can alleviate the effects of chronic conditions such as arthritis, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease.
Improve Mental Wellbeing & Body Composition
Strength training also enhances mental wellbeing, improves body composition (more muscle, less fat), raises self-esteem and self-confidence reduces lower back pain and enhances older people's ability to undertake activities of daily living and maintaining an independent lifestyle.
It's really about developing and maintaining functional fitness, for example carrying shopping bags and lifting them out of the boot, picking up and playing with the grandkids or reaching for that can on the top or bottom shelf.
While you will exercise in a group fitness class with others who come together to enjoy their workout together, your program will be designed for you and your needs.
When you join us you are required to meet 1:1 with your instructor at an agreed time to have your individual program designed for you. This must be completed prior to participating in the classes.
