User friendly equipment

Choosing the right equipment for seniors is crucial in avoiding the risk of injury. However, different people have different needs, and the right equipment depends on personal preferences. We have a large range of resistance machines perfect for low impact weight training, along with a wide range of cardio equipment such as recumbent and upright bikes, elliptical cross trainers, rowing machines and much more.

Exclusive programs for you

We have trainers specialising in exercise for mature age participants who will design a program specific to your needs. There’s no additonal cost for your initial program and you can also select from a range of self paced workouts available at anytime in our gyms just to keep your exercise regime fresh and excting.  You can also learn how to get the most out of our functional training equipment with a free Functional Training Instruction session. When you become a member of Peninsula Fitness we include all this for you.

Working with over 45’s

Most of our team are themselves over 45 and understand the very specific exercise needs of this age range. It’s extremely important to ensure you exercise in a sustainable and safe manner and avoid injury. There are many exercises perfect for older people and members of our team have undertaken specialised training in this area to guide our members in the right direction.

Small group classes

Working out with others in a small group setting is a great way to stay motivated and have fun exercising. We have a range of classes designed exclusively for over 45’s including Yoga, Functional Training, Stength & Stretch and more. Our team have undertaken specialised training for working with older participants and make sure our classes are appropriate for this age range as well as being fun and sociable.
