Steady, Stable and Able

This class focuses on improving balance and strength, both of which are vitally important for older adults. Using hand weights, resistance bands, gym equipment and body weight exercises, we will work to strengthen the major muscle groups. Specific balance exercises will help to improve balance and stability and protect against falls.

What to bring:

  • You will need a resistance band (at least one metre long). Bring your own or purchase from instructor at first class ($8.00).
  • Bottle of water
  • towel
  • Please wear supportive shoes and comfortable clothing for exercise
