LIFEPROOFING 101: SENIORS STRENGTH WORKSHOP
Do you have parents looking to improve their mobility and strength?
We will be running a 90-minute workshop designed specifically for seniors aged 60 and above. In this workshop, we’ll focus on three vital aspects:
- fall prevention
- strength training
We’ll explain why these areas are crucial for maintaining an active and fulfilling lifestyle as we age.
We’ll show you how to improve balance, a key element in preventing falls. We’ll also teach you techniques to confidently get up from the floor and navigate obstacles effortlessly. Understanding which muscles are important to train is crucial for maintaining strength and agility. We’ll guide you through exercises specifically tailored for seniors. We will demonstrate how to build strength gradually and safely, helping you regain confidence in your daily activities.
Sign your parents up for this workshop, where they will learn effective strategies to enhance your mobility and prevent injuries.
This workshop is led by Olivia, a physiotherapist at Edge Healthcare and Salam, a strength and conditioning coach trained in health coaching for seniors

“It was a very good session we learnt about good posture and functional fitness.”
Our children signed us up. It’s very important as you get older. We need to exercise regularly. Today’s session was fun and the group size was just nice.
– Wee Lee and Ah Mee (65 years)
“The session was good!”
I exercise six days a week – walking, cycling, swimming – but I have not done strength training before. Cardio is very easy for everyone, strength training less so. It is good to learn the techniques of strength training and which muscles to use. Also the functional use behind each exercise.

“The instructor was very friendly and helpful. It was very interesting to learn the right technique!”
Normally when we exercise at home, we do very chin chai. We were not scared of the weights and the rowing machine was very fun! We learnt something new today!
– Jasminah (62 years), Abdul Aziz (68 years), Rohana (66 years)
