The "Strengthening for over 60's classes" are accredited by St George Hospital and Fitness Australia.
Nicky, your instructor has been specially trained by St George Hospital to provide this programme in the ACT.
Initially devised by a physiotherapist, these classes are designed to maintain bone density, improve lean muscle mass, co-ordination, flexibility and balance.
Individuals with osteoporosis, controlled diabetes, controlled ischaemia, or joint replacements are just some of the seniors population that may benefit from attending. Participants in other classes have noticed huge benefits after just a few sessions.
Hand held weights and resistance bands are utilised to provide a progressive strength training programme.
Quarterly newsletters are provided for additional information on exercise, nutrition and latest scientific research. Many of the participants enjoy regular treks to Tidbinbilla, the Botanic Gardens and other social events.
We are a friendly non-competitive group.
A medical clearance is a pre-requisite for this programme.
The cost per class is $13.00.
Discounted 10 and 20 session packs available
Participants in the Teachers Federation Health Scheme may claim a rebate.
Bookings are essential as numbers in the class are limited.
Please email or call Nicky for more information and/or print off the information pack for these classes via the "Seniors Info Pack" link on this website.
