Strength For Life (50+)

Strength 4 Life for 50 plus

Strength for Life is a supervised strength training program exclusively for participants over 50 years of age. Train in a group environment with your own personalised program.

A typical class starts with a fun and simple group warm up. Next you spend approximately half an hour on your strength program. (Including both pin loaded machines and free weights.) We finish together with a cool down and a series of stretches.

We recommend that you undertake strength training two or three times per week.

Anyone over the age of 50 years can join.

Our programs are tailored to individual specific needs and can be modified if necessary.

We offer a safe supportive environment within our private air conditioned studio.

You are welcome to come along and observe any of our sessions.

The strength for life program will:

  • Help you maintain your independence
  • Make daily tasks easier
  • Improve your flexibility, vitality and general wellbeing

People's Feedback

Three mornings a week in the gym with a mate sets me up for the day and also keeps the dreaded diabetes at bay. Tongue gets the biggest workout with the friendly atmosphere.
