Here as some glowing reviews from our clients on why they love coming to use our facilities:


Kerry Wood, Bellevue Heights

My husband and I have been members of Strength for Life for the last 13 years and have found the classes and the friendships I have made as a result of the classes invaluable.  My husband has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, and he was able to attend the classes with me until October last year. He is now considered to be in the later stages of the disease.  The care and support we have received from the instructors and members of Strength for Life are a real comfort to me.  As my husband sleeps until lunchtime most days, I am able to attend the classes three times per week. This is now my main social contact apart from the benefits of the exercise.

I also feel that because of my attendance at the gym three times per week, I have more strength and resilience to cope with the demands (and grief) of caring for a husband with later stage Alzheimer’s.

We have also used the Recreation Centre for many years by taking grandchildren to Kinder Gym and then roller blading, so the Centre (in its two locations) has been a part of our life for the last 25 years. I very much hope that it can continue in its present form for many more years.
