Over 50s Fitness

It's never too late to get stronger and healthier

As you get older, the body starts to slow down. It may be health problems, weight, or pain issues, or worries about falling (it happens to the best of us). You think that exercising simply isn’t for you.

While these may seem good reasons to slow down, they're an even better reason to get moving.

A recent Swedish study found that physical activity was the number one contributor to longevity. It adds extra years to your life – even if you don’t start until your senior years. 

Exercise has been shown to:

  • Help you maintain or lose weight
  • Reduce the impact of illness and chronic disease
  • Enhance mobility, flexibility, and balance
  • Improve sleep
  • Boost mood and self-confidence
  • Do amazing things for the brain

Which are all important to living a long and happy life.

That’s why our Strength For Life is so great for your health.

Strength for Life is a strength program for people over 50. But it’s so much more.

  • It’s functional – using everyday movements to strengthen your body
  • It’s progressive – with the difficulty rising as you improve
  • It’s personal – with a program tailored to your skills

Using simple weight and cardio techniques in our gym, our certified trainer (and two-time COTA SA Instructor of Year) will give you a personal program for you to follow.

Moreover, it’s fun and it brings people together. But getting active is not just about adding years to your life, it’s about adding life to your years.

In Strength for Life, you’ll join a community of like-minded people.

These people are all working towards their goal of being stronger and healthier in their later years. And the results speak for themselves. Here’s some great feedback we’ve had over the years).
