Whole Body Strength Training

Regular strength training will help you increase muscle strength, maintain bone density, improve balance and reduce joint pain, helping you to move better and more safely.

Keeping physically active will also reduce your risk of other heath conditions including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, depression and some cancers.

IMPORTANT: These are standing exercises. Please read the safety advice at the beginning of each video. To do these safely, you will need some degree of balance and be able to stand without the help of another person. If you feel these exercises are not quite right for you at the moment, please refer to the seated exercise section on our website. If you require further advice about which form of exercise is safe for you, you can request a call from one of our trainers who will be happy to advise you.

Make sure to read our advice about exercise and warming up before you begin.
