This week we attend the launch of a program designed to encourage people over fifty years of age to potentially add years to their lives by becoming fitter and stronger.

The Living Longer Living Stronger program is designed to maximise opportunities for older people to engage in affordable, high quality, results oriented, strength training programs over the longer term.

The concept has been developed and tested in Victoria since 1999 which now has over 90 providers working in collaboration with Council on the Ageing providing individualized training programs to over 4,000 people. The programme uses the down times of Health and Fitness centres to provide a low cost intervention strategy for Seniors with a compliance rate of 85% over 12 months.

Individuals and health and fitness centres can make general enquiries and bookings by contacting Paula Matthews, Project Manager, Living Longer Living Stronger at Council on the Ageing (WA) Inc (COTA) on 08 9321 2133
