Improve your Strength and Balance at the Seniors Exercise Park at Hoppers Crossing.

What is the Seniors Exercise Park?

The Seniors Exercise Park has been designed for Seniors to maintain and increase strength, mobility and coordination. It is unlike exercise equipment at parks and reserves because it focuses on key areas from balance, to shoulder and finger flexibility to keeping important areas strong to maintain independence and quality of life.

It is outdoors and is free to access. (the shade cover helps with the sun and other inclement weather).

What happens at the session?

Our trained Volunteer Buddies will show you how to use the equipment and how to make exercises easier or harder. Take the activities at your pace, learn how to use the equipment and have fun.

The Volunteer Buddies will guide you through a warm-up, some of the equipment and how to stretch. They are NOT qualified Fitness instructors, Allied Health professionals or First Aiders. They are community minded, friendly people who will share how to use the equipment and the benefits you will get.

Taking part in this session should be no higher risk than if you decided to use the equipment on your own or go for a walk. Join in and if you like it come back again. These sessions are running regularly, so pop it in your diary and come every week!

We have 2 sessions running each week. Each session runs 10 to 10.45am.  Places are limited.

We will happily run sessions for groups, contact activewyndham@wyndham.vic.gov.au and we will connect with you to organise.
