You are never too old to start investing in your health and well being. The Council on Ageing WA's Strength for Life program at both Cannington and Riverton Leisureplex offers award-winning senior fitness services and solutions catering to people 50 years of age and over.
The program focuses on getting more seniors into the gym environment, completing a structured strength routine designed specifically for their needs. A full doctor's clearance and physical assessment with our fitness team is required before commencing the program.
A personalised workout plan will be provided and we will encourage and support you while instructing on the correct technique and safety.
