About Strength for Life

COTA (Council of the Ageing) SA’s ‘Strength for Life’ project enables people 50 years and over to access affordable and quality strength training programs at local venues across the state.

What does ‘Strength for Life’ offer you?

Strength training can alleviate the effects of chronic conditions such as arthritis, type two diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Strength training has also been shown to improve balance and reduce risk of falling, enhance mental wellbeing, improve body composition (more muscle, less fat), raise self-esteem and self-confidence, reduce lower back pain, enhance older people’s ability to undertake activities of daily living, and maintain an independent lifestyle. Feedback from people that have been doing the program in gyms across Salisbury has been very positive. They also like the supportive environment.
