Viva Health Club provides specialised fitness classes aimed specifically for older adults within the local Blacktown community and surrounding areas.
No matter your age or physical condition, it’s never too late to get your body moving to improve your health and fitness. Viva offers seniors an opportunity to participate in a fun, social, safe and comfortable environment with tailored exercise classes specifically aimed at the 60 years and over age group, that works on the gradual building of an individual’s endurance, strength, balance and flexibility.
Regular physical activity for older adults is vital and participating in a regular fitness program contributes to your overall health and well-being. It lowers the risk for a variety of health conditions including Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Heart Disease (including heart attack or stroke), diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure and obesity.
The advantages of maintaining an ongoing active exercise routine is that it can help to strengthen your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones to assist in the fight against osteoporosis. At a mature age, keeping your body strong can also help you maintain your independence as you age
A consistent exercise routine can also help to boost energy and manage symptoms of illness or pain, and can even improve some of the symptoms of aging. Not only is exercise good for your body, it’s also good for your mind, mood, and memory.
All seniors attending these classes upon membership will be applicable for a confidential and personalised health screen to obtain information on specific health related issues and a tailored exercise plan to suit will be issued to each participating member.
Nutritional advice and menu plans are also available upon request, in addition to the convenience of onsite health practitioners that are situated within the Eastbrooke Blacktown GP SuperClinic “Health Hub” facility.
Viva Health Club offers a safe and secure environment, with entry to the club via tag access only and ample onsite parking available with convenient lift access. Mid-morning classes are now available with membership at concession prices.
