Group Fitness Classes
Reservoir Leisure Centre runs group fitness and mind body classes each week suitable for seniors. Classes include low impact classes, along with a great mix of water exercise classes and yoga classes.
 
Living Longer Living Stronger
Living Longer Living Stronger (LLLS) is a progressive strength (or resisitance) training program for older people, designed to increase strength, balance, flexibility and coordination, so helping to improve your confidence and reduce the risk of falls.

A program will be individually designed with strength training being the key element, but the LLLS sessions will include a short warm up and exercises to help improve balance, flexibility and coordination.

The sessions are held on Monday and Wednesday at 12pm until 1pm. Cost of each session is $5 and are included in the Staying Active Membership. Initial registration requires a booking for a Health Check and a Medical Clearance from a GP.
