It's Carol and Trudi here, the mother and daughter team behind Third Age Fitness. The passion for older adults has passed down the generations, and Trudi and Carol have created a unique partnership that combines first hand experience of being an older adult with new ideas and new learning that comes with youth!
We love to keep older adults fit and healthy, so whether you are an instructor who didn’t know older adults can plank, or an older adult who wants to be able to get up off the floor unaided, we are here to help with training, workouts and resources.
WE OFFER TRAINING to instructors and professionals 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 TEACH 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. These can be accessed by online memberships, DVDs, or digital downloads.
WE CREATE RESOURCES for professionals and participants to help you stay active. We have circuit cards, exercise handouts, free short courses, an abundance of information on our website, and we're always just an email or phone call away if you need help on where to start.

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.
