Older adults

Move for Life class participants pose as a group

We're committed to offering programs and services at each of our facilities to support older adults to stay healthy and well.

Move for Life

Our Move for Life program is designed to ensure that older adults in our community feel strong, empowered and connected.   

This program is specially designed for people aged 55 and over, with a focus on those who need a gentle and supportive gym experience. 

What happens in a session?

Our knowledgeable trainers will support you through an engaging independent gym session focused on building your strength, balance, mobility and confidence.  

How do I join?

Book your assessment

Book your initial assessment with one of our Gym Instructors online or visit us at reception.  

The assessment costs $49.90 and will allow our gym instructors to create a tailored program especially for you!  

Complete your medical form

Before you start your program, please ensure your doctor completes our medical form confirming you are able to participate. Please bring the completed medical form with you to your initial assessment.

I'm a current participant, how do I book a re-assessment and get a new program? 

If you think it's time for a new program you need to book a gym appointment at reception. We recommend you get a new program every 8-12 weeks.

Each appointment costs $49.90 and will allow time for our Gym Instructor to complete a full health assessment and create a new tailored program especially for you!

Please note, new programs and assessments can't be scheduled during Move for Life sessions as we need to supervise and support everyone in the session. 

When is the program?

We offer classes weekdays at Collingwood Leisure Centre and Richmond Recreation Centre.

Upcoming classes

If you've already completed your initial assessment you can book your class online.
