NEW DATE: Older Adult Fitness Level 1 Workshop - 21st November - CLICK HERE

Keeping older adults fit and healthy is our goal, so whether you are an instructor who didn’t realise older adults can plank, or a participant who didn’t realise you can get up off the floor unaided, we want to push those expectations and limitations and stereotypes around older adults.

We offer TRAINING to instructors for how to teach great older adults group fitness classes, as well as council staff and fitness centre staff to give a better understanding of working with older adults.

We offer WORKOUTS for older adult participants to do at home, for carers who are looking after loved ones at home, and to aged care and retirement villages as a part of their co-ordinated activity programs.

We offer RESOURCES for instructors like circuit cards, class plans and music, and for aged care facilities like balls, spoons and bands.

About Third Age Fitness

Where age is no barrier to exercise

Third Age Fitness has the philosophy that age is no barrier to exercise. Too often we see older adults underestimated, either by themselves or by others around them, but we believe that with a little encouragement, and in the right environment, older adults can build and maintain their physical and mental well being to a level that will see them enjoy and participate in life to the fullest.

Carol and Trudi have been working with older adults in the fitness industry for more than 50 years combined. We love working with older adults, and have worked with thousands of participants to help them and encourage them to use exercise as a way to build strength, confidence, and vitality, which is all so important to maintain as we age.

We have a raft of fitness and health qualifications between us, and are constantly learning new techniques and ways to keep participants engaged and exercising. We are both qualified in Training & Assessment, and our workshop and online courses have been accredited by Physical Activity Australia and Fitness Australia.
