Pop on your Silver Sneakers

Tracey Fredericks and SoulFit Woonona will be launching a new term of their fantastic Silver Sneakers program in July. 

The program is aimed at women who are over 65 and new to exercise, or who live with a chronic condition, and aims to improve their quality of life through a safe, enjoyable and evidence-based program, supervised by Accredited Exercise Physiologist Tracey Fredericks. 

Each week of the nine-week program has a different focus, including balance, strength, core and flexibility. 

Tracey says you’re never too old to start moving and gain benefits from exercise: 

“Exercise is such an essential part of life – not only the physical benefits of moving, but also the social benefits of being part of a small and friendly group. I’ve had people in their 80s participate in the program, so age isn’t a barrier. Everyone is welcome.

The program and the benefits of regular exercise when you’re older will be outlined by Tracey at the free information session she’s holding, due to take place:

10am, Thursday 15 July, at Bulli Surf Life Saving Club. 

The program has been proven to have a positive impact on participants: 

“We conduct a physiological and functional assessment at the beginning and end of each program, and 100% of participants to date have seen an improvement in their results,” says Tracey. 

“It’s amazing what can be achieved through regular movement and gentle exercise.” 

The program can be claimed as part of your NDIS package or via your private health fund. The term will start on 27 July, 2021, and runs for nine weeks, with small groups of up to eight participants.
