Exercise Right for Active Ageing (ERAA) in ACT

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

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 and does a mini-assessment before getting started. These assessments are designed to test your functional ability and current levels of physical activity. Once cleared to take part, you receive a subsidised 1hr group exercise session once per week, for 12 weeks. A post re-assessment is completed once you finish all 12 classes to compare your progress.

This program aims to create connections, build strength and functional ability, help maintain independence and increase quality of life!
