COTA NSW Strength for Life - participant

Exercise program to improve strength, balance and mobility



Strength for Life - In-person classes
 


Strength for Life is a progressive training program designed to improve your strength and fitness. Normally, you attend classes held in a local gym, council facility or community centre and gradually increase the level of work you do to develop your strength. The charge for the classes is very reasonable.



It doesn't matter if you are unfit, or you have never done an exercise class before. You will have an individual program but will take part in a class that is designed for people of all levels of ability. Among other things, this gives you the opportunity to socialise with likeminded people!

The trainers are all qualified exercise professionals who have undertaken a special program to be accredited with Strength for Life. They have a good understanding of the needs of older people and will create a friendly environment that you will feel comfortable in.

In-person classes are starting up again now. We also have online classes if you would prefer that. Find out about online classes
