Australia’s population is ageing, and with it an increase in frailty and burden of disease.

What does the Living Longer Living Stronger program involve?

There are two parts to the program, an initial one on one assessment with your certified facilitator and then simply join the Living Longer Living Stronger classes which run at the below locations.

What can I expect?

During the one-on-one assessment, we will review the pre-exercise screening tool and ensure that you have a referral if necessary. We will also discuss your current physical activity, medical history, goals, and aspirations. Using this information, the LLLS facilitator will create a personalized exercise program tailored to your specific needs. This assessment typically takes around 45 minutes to complete.

Afterwards, you will join a class with other individuals who also have their own personalised program. Throughout the class, the LLLS facilitator will supervise and support you and your peers to ensure that you are correctly performing the exercises and know when to increase your weight or modify your exercises.
