Exercise classes for the elderly

  • CommunitySeniors
Mascha Schainberg is proving that age is nothing but a number. Despite having just turned 90, this sprightly lady continues to attend exercise classes at a gym in Berario twice a week.

This is an amazing achievement for a woman who survived four years in Auschwitz.

As more and more people are living longer, there are increasing numbers of senior citizens contemplating the prospect of 10, 15 or more years of retirement. What are they going to do during these years? Enter the SA Seniors Fitness Association (SASFA).

SASFA aims to enable senior citizens to socialise more and feel healthy by presenting exercise and recreational programmes in a relaxed environment.

A seniors’ fitness programme focuses on flexibility, balance, co-ordination, stamina, muscle strengthening and cardiovascular exercises. These exercises are set to enjoyable and stimulating music. Senior instructors are all fully trained and must hold a National Certificate.

  • To find out more about SASFA, call Iona Henning 010 222 0070, Helga Calitz 011 792 9245 or Dot Tyldesley 076 538 7308.

    I have the following questions.

    Do you have a branch in Cape Town.
    If yes how much do you charge per session for a small group of elderly people.
