Welcome to 50+ Fitness Therapy
Our programme has been devised by Katherine Williamson, an experienced physiotherapist specialising in exercise and rehabilitation for older people. We offer a variety of exercise classes specifically designed for people over 50. All classes, both land and aqua, cater for a wide range of abilities, with participants encouraged to challenge themselves whilst in a professional, caring and fun environment.
The ‘land’ classes take place at Canonbury Cottage in beautiful McKell Park, Darling Point. We exercise outside on the courtyard using a variety of gym equipment whilst enjoying views of Sydney harbour. In wet weather the classes take place inside the cottage. These classes are tailored to suit your specific needs so an assessment is advisable prior to commencement so that the exercises give you maximum benefit to your lifestyle.
Our new ‘land’ class at Wylie’s Baths in Coogee on Mondays and Thursdays is set up as a circuit using a variety of equipment to improve strength & balance, all with beautiful ocean views.
The aqua classes take place at the Coogee Diggers Club and the Kick Learn to Swim School in Edgecliff. Both pools are heated and easily accessible. The support and buoyancy provided by the water allows people to do movements not possible under the influence of gravity. The pool is therefore an ideal place to improve balance, muscle strength, flexibility and core control. Everyone does the same routine during the class but the water allows you to work at your own pace.
