Functional Fitness for 50+

Our programs are tailored to individual specific needs. A personalised program is created for each participant, with training sessions held in a group environment.

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.
