A progressive strength and balance program designed to improve your strength, balance and mobility.

It doesn’t matter if you have never done an exercise class before, or if you are relatively unfit. Each person will be individually assessed for their physical level and a tailored exercise program will be created for each attendee. The classes are designed for people of all levels of ability. Through regular attendance, you will gradually increase the level of work you do to develop your strength.

Strength training benefits include:

  • increasing muscles mass and strength

  • improving coordination and confidence in the way you move, reducing your risk of falls

  • improving insulin sensitivity and joint health

  • reducing anxiety and depression

  • increasing brain function and learning.

The program also provides an opportunity for socialising and meeting new people.

Bookings are essential.

The program is also available at St Helen's Community CentreReginald Murphy Community Centre and Cliff Noble Community Centre on Thursdays.

It's run by SHARE working the Council on the Ageing NSW and is supported by City of Sydney.
