Exercise Groups


I am worried about my balance. I want to stay fit, strong and healthy.

We can help build strength and fitness, enabling clients to maintain an active, independent lifestyle.

Every person’s fitness goals are as unique as the way they like their coffee. Our qualified staff work with each person to create individual health goals. Clients may want to work on being able to walk to the bus stop, preventing falls, improving balance or core strength. Whatever the goal, we have an exercise program to suit.

Age Well Fitness

This exercise class is for those who want to start exercise for the first time, are returning to exercise or who need support after an illness or injury. This is a group class (so expect a fun, social atmosphere!) but each person has their own exercise program, created by their Exercise Physiologist after an initial assessment.
