Community Strength & Balance

Community strength and balance classes are social, fun, and keep you strong and independent to do the activities you love.  

Come and Try Events

It can be hard to know what sort of exercise you will enjoy, and what is the best fit for your needs. In October and November we are hosting three events where you can try short samples of a variety of exercise styles in one space. Join us in Wellington (Kilbirnie), Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt.
