The Strength for Life program aims to improve health outcomes, fitness and quality of life for older people through strength and balance training.
The program has been running successfully for many years in other states and territories under the Strength for Life and Living Longer Living Stronger banners. Funding from the Australian Government’s Move It AUS – Better Ageing Grant Program has enabled us to expand the program under a unified national brand.
The program offers two tiers:
- Under Tier 1, baseline and follow up testing is conducted by accredited exercise physiologists and physiotherapists.
- Under Tier 2, progressive strength training sessions are delivered in a group setting by accredited fitness professionals. Although classes are delivered in groups, individualised strength training plans are developed for each participant.
Affordable access to strength training
The program is designed to provide affordable access to strength training. Fees are capped to keep costs low and participants may also be able to access rebates through their health fund or Medicare.
