The UniRec LifeFit programme is designed for seniors, people with green prescriptions or medical conditions and others needing additional support and encouragement to be active. The programme offers enjoyable, social and achievable exercise sessions that focus upon resistance and cardiovascular training at a light and manageable pace.
Class Times: LifeFit Low: Mondays & Thursdays | 8.30am – 9.30am
Supervised Resistance & Cardio Training: Tuesdays & Fridays | 7.00am – 9.30am
Delivered as part of the supervised LifeFit sessions, UniRec’s Healthy Heart Programme is a support group in which regular exercise forms either part of the rehabilitation process following a heart event or assisting in the prevention of heart disease.
Proudly supported by the Heart Foundation, the programme is suitable for those who have had heart surgery, have a heart condition or those who are at high risk including members with blood pressure, diabetes, obesity or high cholesterol symptoms.
As part of the LifeFit programme, Sport 4 Seniors (which is managed in conjunction with Sport Waikato) provides an opportunity for participants to learn new skills and play a variety of sports. Each session is supervised by knowledgeable and qualified staff so members are in safe hands when they’re working out.
