Age Well

Our exercise physiology services are perfect for older adults who wish to improve daily living capacity, keep active and feel stronger, fitter and more confident.  We strongly believe that exercise can have a big impact on the quality of life and independence for older australians.

We offer individual consultations to assist with an exercise program for the gym or at home so that you can exercise when you like. Our Age Well program aims to assist with some of the key areas that impact older australians the most – Osteoporosis, falls prevention and access to group based exercise for social connection and improved strength fitness and longevity.

Aged Care Funding: If you have an aged care package and wish to begin exercise physiology sessions, please contact us and we can discuss how you may be able to have this funded by your package.

Try our ‘Strong Bones’ Program (Osteoporosis):
Osteoporosis is defined as compromised bone density predisposing a person to an increased risk of fracture. Osteoporotic fracture can occur at almost any skeletal site and more than 95% of hip fractures occur as a consequence of a fall.

Exercise is widely recognized as having significant benefits for the development and maintenance of bone density throughout life and can play a vital role in improving balance and reducing the risk of falls.

At Connect Exercise Physiology we are able to tailor an exercise program and provide you with education on safe and effective exercise for osteoporosis and osteopenia. Our program focuses on current research and aims to increase your ability to engage in regular weight bearing exercise, balance exercise and suitable impact based exercise to improve your bone density and prevent risk of falling.

This program includes an initial assessment to identify your goals, an exercise program with ongoing monitoring and progression, as well as support and education specific to osteoporosis.

Try our ‘Stand Strong’ Program (Falls Prevention):
This program is designed specifically for people who are at risk of falls due to poor balance and muscle deconditioning. Our falls prevention program is based on the evidence based Otago exercise program that is found to reduce falls rates by up to 32%. The program focuses on exercise prescription including leg strengthening, balance based exercise and a suitable walking program. Empowering education to increase knowledge of safe exercise and the benefits of exercise for falls prevention is an essential component of the program.

Our Age Well group exercise program (Seniors class) is a great way to receive support, engage socially and complete your exercise program. These classes are a great adjunct to our falls prevention program or osteoporosis program for those that wish to join in group exercise.
