What is Strength for Life?
The Strength for Life program promotes health and well-being amongst people over 50.

Strength training has also been shown to:
- Improve balance and reduce risk of falling
- Enhance mental wellbeing
- Improve body composition (more muscle, less fat)
- Raise self-esteem and self-confidence
- Reduce lower back pain
- Enhance older people’s ability to undertake activities of daily living and maintain an independent lifestyle.
