Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleBella VistaRandwickPymbleBalmain and Neutral Bay discuss the benefits of exercise for the elderly. 

Our Exercise Physiologists can help clients who may have difficulties maintaining their functional independence. Often our clients’ biggest goal with working with the elderly is to improve their quality of life. This can vary from person to person depending on their personal goals and how we will get them there in order to live their best life. We don’t want you to feel limited by your health!

It is common for the elderly to be hesitant in starting exercise, however, Longevity’s Exercise Physiologists can use their experience and expertise to ensure you are safe and being treated with the most effective exercises.
