Professional Development Workshop

Tuesday 2nd April, 9.00am - 12.30pm

The newly constructed senior exercise park is an innovative design in outdoor exercise equipment, integrating multiple stations specifically designed for older people to improve strength, balance, flexibility, mobility and function. The senior exercise park is a novel concept that aims to fulfil the need for an active outdoor space for older people to be physically active in the community.

At this half-day evidence-based workshop you will learn:

  • to recognise the impact of lack of physical activity in older age
  • to understand the beneficial effects of using the senior exercise park equipment
  • how to use the equipment safely
  • what exercises can be prescribed and how to progress them
  • how to run a group exercise class

This workshop gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and will include practical application experience in using the senior exercise park for your clients.

  • Associate Professor Pazit Levinger, PhD, AEP
  • Dr. Maya Panisset, MSPT (Physiotherapist), PhD
