Strength and Balance

Maintaining a Healthy, Mobile Older Community

 

Each year, one in three people aged 65 and over will fall. For people aged 80 and over, the risk increases to one in two. Clinical research has shown that when people do exercise and strengthen their core, their balance improves, and their risk of falls reduces by 30-50%.

Older Adults

Gentle group exercise sessions to suit all fitness levels, with an aim to strengthen core muscles and leg strength to improve balance and help prevent the risk of falling.

Providers

A series of training sessions designed to educate your team on the key aspect of falls prevention and helping the older members in your community stay as healthy and mobile as possible.

Health Professionals

Community Group Strength and Balance classes will support participants to build their core muscles and leg strength and improve their balance.
