Come and join us!

The need for regular exercise and especially, resistance and weight training, is essential to successfully slow down the ever-hastening effects of ageing. Maintenance and re-building of body strength is absolutely necessary to remain physically independent, e.g. carrying shopping, wood, cleaning, lifting, gardening, mowing, safety in the home etc.

People of all health and fitness levels are welcome to join us, and once a month we also meet for coffee and cake afterwards!

Your Health is a Priority

The Doctors at  Kingston Medical Centre have this important information to share:

  • Weight training and resistance training builds strength in bones and prevents osteoporosis. Weight bearing exercises help the body resist gravity and stimulate bone cells to grow. Strength-training builds muscles which also increases bone strength.
  • Weight and resistance training builds and maintains essential core muscle strength to protect the spine and relieve back strain.
  • Stretching has many benefits that elasticises the muscles and in doing so releases endorphins into the body and aids overall health.
  • Functional health training insures that people learn safe ways of completing life's chores that require lifting in particular.
