Our strength training aims to improve bone and muscle strength and flexibility. The group is run by an allied health professional and allied health assistant and is suitable for older adults.

The selected exercises target the major muscle groups and have been chosen to improve strength in the types of movements you do everyday. Strength Training has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and arthritis.Regular exercise will also increase an overall sense of well being and general fitness. Participants progress at their own pace to achieve and maintain their fitness.

Strength training can:

  • Increase muscle strength
  • Improve bone density
  • Reduce fracture risk
  • Improve flexibility and balance
