A JANDAKOT fitness instructor has been acknowledged for his work helping seniors remain healthy and fit.
Transitions Health and Fitness’ Tyler Hall was named the Most Outstanding Living Longer Living Stronger Instructor as part of Council on the Ageing WA’s annual Active Ageing Awards.
The program is for over-50s and helps to prevent falls, reduce osteoarthritis and bone density erosion, manage cardiovascular health, and prevent cognitive decline and depression.
Mr Hall was voted best instructor by an independent panel for his leadership, passion and generosity.
Cockburn also had another local winner, with the founder of a walking group based at Cockburn Gateway Shopping City accepting an award for Best Mall Walking Leader.
Ron Hetherington accepted a special commemorative plaque at the shopping centre where the group gets together each week.
COTA WA’s active ageing manager Phil Airey said the walking group’s unique festive atmosphere was thanks to Mr Hetherington’s entertaining and encouraging leadership.
