This class designed for older adults, 50 plus, will help improve core strength, balance and flexibility using weights, resistance bands and stretching techniques. Ideal for those developing their base fitness or recovering from injury.

“As a first time student of Balance Back to Exercise, for just one term, I’m finding it a most enjoyable program. Involving loosening up, stretching and at the same time, strengthening core muscles which in turn aids my sense of balance. Robin, my instructor, fills the room with fun, laughter and exercise. I’m sure if more people knew of the benefits of this program they would flock to Balwyn Community Centre to join.”
