Seniors Programs

Age shouldn’t be a barrier to fun and fitness

In fact, as you get older, an active and healthy lifestyle becomes more important than ever.

Regular exercise helps boost energy levels, manage symptoms of illness or pain, improve your mood and memory and even maintain your independence. You can’t afford not to get moving!

A lot of older people can feel discouraged by barriers to fitness such as health conditions, injuries, difficulty in getting the right advice or finding a group of people to exercise with.

At the Echuca War Memorial Aquatic Centre though, there are a number of ways for seniors to get more active, increase their fitness levels and improve their overall health and wellbeing in a supportive and social environment.

Campaspe Aquatic and Leisure Services' Seniors Programs are designed specifically for people aged over 50 years and are affordably priced with membership and casual attendance options, conducted by fully qualified health and fitness instructors and cater for different levels of ability and mobility so that everyone can participate.
