Strength for Life

The Strength for Life™ program is designed specifically for the over 50s and each participant is prescribed their own individual exercise program to meet their needs. It caters for people of all abilities and encourages participants to start slow, work at their own pace and progress as they get stronger.

Strength training for older people builds muscle mass and increases bone density to improve strength, balance, gait, flexibility and coordination. Research has shown that strength or resistance training not only improves quality of life and wellbeing, but can also assist in the prevention and management of chronic disease such as arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, depression and osteoporosis.

Paticipants can enjoy social interaction with like-minded people while striving towards their own personal goals.
