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

The children enjoyed the morning, they were happy with all your supervisors help. They thought it was lots of fun. The balance of organised games and free skating was great and all children thought it was well balanced. Well done to your centre.
