Strength For Life


We have partnered with COTA NSW (Council on the Ageing NSW) to launch an exciting new exercise program, Strength for Life, designed specifically for people over 50.

Strength for Life is an affordable strength and balance program that aims to improve strength, balance, coordination and endurance through regular resistance training. Developed and run by COTA NSW, it complements our mission to help older MidCoast residents live active and independent lives in their own homes.

Exercise classes are provided by local exercise professionals who have completed specialised training to be accredited as a Strength for Life instructor. Participants will undertake an initial assessment where a program tailored to their needs is developed, at a cost that ranges from $30 - $50.

From there, participants can attend exercise classes throughout the week, at a maximum cost of $10 per session.

Not feeling fit? Our accredited trainers ensure that everyone feels comfortable, even if they haven’t been to an exercise class before. As well as understanding the issues and conditions that are more likely to affect older people, they arm participants with a program tailored to their individual needs.

Find out more today, by contacting your nearest venue directly for information about class timetables, frequency and costs. They will also help you book your initial one-on-one assessment.
