STRENGTH FOR LIFE 50+

Live longer, stronger and happier!

Ageing has long been associated with a loss of physical strength, function and mobility. However, research has shown that regardless of age, muscular strength can be regained and maintained by undertaking an appropriately prescribed strength training program.

What is Strength For Life?

The Strength For Life program promotes health and well-being and is designed to enable people 50 years and over to access affordable, fun and supervised training sessions. Participants in the Strength For Life program engage in progressive strength training, using appropriate and increasingly heavy resistance under the supervision of fitness professionals. Research has also shown that strength training can alleviate the effects of chronic conditions such as Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Heart Disease, chronic Kidney Disease and depression.

Strength Training has also been shown to:

  • Improve balance and reduce risk of falling

  • Enhance mental well-being

  • Improve body composition (more muscle, less fat)

  • Raise self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Reduce lower back pain

  • Enhance older people's ability to undertake activities of daily living and maintain an independent lifestyle
