Strong to the Bone is an evidence-based group exercise intervention delivered by our experienced exercise physiologist, Mike Fitzsimon.
The program focuses on four key areas to improve your bone density and quality of life:
Reduce the risk of fall related fractures by improving your balance and coordination.
Perform safe and effective weight-bearing and resistance exercises to increase bone density and muscle strength.
Learn how to protect your body from compression and overuse injuries.
Increase your movement capacity by exercises that reduce tension and pain.
Exercise physiologist Mike Fitzsimon runs the Strong to the Bone program.
Strong to the Bone can help you fight osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a disease that reduces the density and quality of bone. This causes a weakness of the skeleton and an increased risk of fracture.
- 1 in 3 women are affected by the disease
- 1 in 2 women over age 60 who suffer from osteoporosis will fracture a bone
- Osteoporosis is one of the most common causes for women over 45 years being admitted to hospital.
Strong to the Bone can help fight osteoporosis.
Like our muscles, bones are living and growing tissue. Strong to the Bone uses resistance and weight-bearing exercises to nourish your bones, enabling you to be stronger and more active.
