An exercise group run by Rise in Mundaring is helping people stay fit and active in their senior years.
The group started in 2009 and runs at The Hub of the Hills. This is a community facility next to our social centre, Wahroonga.
Instructors Tina and Melanie lead two classes a week with up to 10 people attend each session. Tina said the classes lasts for an hour and are followed by light refreshments and a chance to chat.
This has been a great opportunity to help boost fitness and improve the group’s confidence. Anyone can have a go, in a totally safe and fun environment.
Sheila (75) and Jenny (83) enjoy the exercise group.
Tina our instructor is so inclusive, and doesn’t’ mind if you need a little sit down. She understands if you get tired.
