CSU adjunct research fellow in the CSU School of Exercise Science, Exercise and Health Dr Eevon Stott said the four-week two-hour workshops are being provided free to anyone over 60.
“The Ageing Well workshops will benefit people aged over 60 by providing greater awareness of how exercise can improve their physical well-being,” Dr Stott said.
“We draw together research and education to empower the community to get healthier.
“There will be two series of workshops, each with the capacity for 12 participants.
“Each workshop consists of four sessions, and are designed to cover cardiovascular fitness, muscular fitness, flexibility, balance and function.”

- 9.30am to 11.30am on Wednesdays on 29 May, 5, 12 and 19 June
The first series of workshops will be held on Friday mornings beginning early May and the second series of workshops will be held on Wednesday mornings beginning late May.
