Exercise Right for Active Ageing (ERAA) in ACT

The Exercise Right for Active Ageing (ERAA) project is a group intervention exercise program for older Australians over 65. Thanks to funding from the Australian Government, Exercise Sports Science Australia (ESSA) is able to deliver discounted exercise classes to seniors all around the country ONLY during 2021.

Research shows that only 17.2% of those aged over 65 meet the Physical Activity Guidelines. Regular exercise not only helps to reduce your risk of chronic disease, but also helps keep your bones strong, reduces your risk of falls and helps to maintain independence and quality of life.

As part of the program, each participant is pre-screened over the phone and does a face-to-face mini-initial assessment before getting started. The assessments used are designed to test your functional ability and assess your current levels of physical activity.
