Strengthening Exercise Classes
The Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre has been offering 'Seniors' fitness classes for local residents since October 2003. The Strengthening Exercise program developed at St George hospital after much research, has been an overwhelming success in the Mid Mountains with residents participating in weekly classes. Research suggests that resistance or strength training can improve strength, functional ability, balance and bone density. It can also reduce cardiovascular risk factors and depression. In other words, it can greatly assist residents to remain physically able and independent for longer. Participants also say how much they enjoy the company of others in the area. So, if you would like to give this program a go, give us a call at the Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre. Proudly sponsored by the Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre Bookings are essential.
