Seaside Exercise Physiology will hold a free event on Monday, July 28 to launch the Living Longer Living Stronger program endorsed by the Council on the Ageing WA.

Owner Yvonne Ritchie said she was looking forward to offering the program to older residents from Butler to Two Rocks.

‘We have state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to assist all seniors become involved in healthy exercise that will have a real impact on their lives, in a comfortable and secure environment,’ she said.

The exercise sessions, delivered by an exercise physiologist, are each capped at $8 for seniors and aim to reduce the risk of falls and improve the health and fitness of people over 50.

Long-term program participant Bob Zeigler said the program could be an effective anti-depressant, while preventing cognitive decline and decreasing arthritic inflammation.

‘The connections you make in the program lead to friendships that stay with you for life,’ he said.

‘The sessions are about building strength, but are also fun and social places to be.’

Residents can attend the afternoon launch next Monday, with light refreshments provided.
