Strength training is particularly necessary when ageing as it helps with muscular mass reduction that decreases significantly after 50. Health experts advise that strengthening core muscles will improve balance that assists with reducing the risk of falls. Our strength training classes are aimed at strengthening core muscles using weights and with our expertly trained YMCA instructors, you will feel safe and carefully guided through every exercise. According to the experts, it’s never too late, even if you’ve never picked up a weight in your life!

Strength training for over 65s helps to improve:

  • Balance that helps with everyday activities (e.g., climbing stairs, carrying groceries)
  • Bone density
  • Blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels
  • Cognitive function
  • Depressive symptoms
