Older adults

Female participants in a Living Longer Living Stronger session on treadmills

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

Living Longer Living Stronger (LLLS)

LLLS is a strength training program for older people aged 50+ which is endorsed by the Council of the Ageing.

What happens in a session?

LLLS is a group class. After an initial consultation, a gym instructor will guide you through strength exercises that meet your personal health goals.

You will develop safe strength training techniques. We encourage you to progressively increase your weights to build your strength.

How do I join?

You must have an initial assessment with one of our instructors. Our instructor will build you an individual program to meet your health goals. Visit us at reception to book your assessment.

Before you start your program, please ensure your doctor completes our medical form confirming you are able to participate.

When is the program?

LLLS runs most weekdays at Collingwood Leisure Centre and Richmond Recreation Centre. Check our timetable for class times.

How much does a session cost?

Classes are casual. There is no contract and you do not need to be a member to attend.

Each session costs $8.60 (full price) or $5.10 (concession). The initial assessment is a one-time cost of $47.30.

City of Yarra also runs a range of community activities for older adults. 

What other programs are available for older people?

We also run Grey Medallion, a water safety and lifesaving skills course for over 60’s. View upcoming courses in our event listings.
