Staying Strong At Home
The COTA (Council on the Ageing) Tasmania has published a wonderful booklet called Staying Strong at Home, with strength and balance exercises that you can do at home with no fitness equipment. COTA Tasmania has been the voice of older Tasmanians for over 50 years. Their mission is to advance the rights, interests and futures of Australians as they age.
The Staying Strong at Home booklet can be downloaded as a PDF document (click here —> File Size 2.5MB).
COTA Tasmania also has a program called Living Longer Living Stronger, which is a personalised strength and balance program for older Tasmanians. This program provides safe, affordable and effective training sessions to anyone aged 50 or older and 40 or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Andrew from Health Jigsaw is now an accredited Living Longer Living Stronger instructor. Further details on this program for anyone living in the Channel area (south of Hobart) will be released shortly, or contact us to register your interest.
