Mobile Living Longer Living Stronger Instructors

On Wednesday 19 July COTA WA launched a brand new service that mobilises highly qualified Living Longer Living Stronger Instructors to retirement communities and community facilities throughout the metropolitan area.

We have hand picked some of Perth’s best Exercise Physiologists and Fitness Instructors to deliver both Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels of the service and bring WA’s best health and fitness program for the over 50’s to Seniors who may be sedentary or socially isolated in the community.

If you have a group of around 10 or more interested Seniors, we can bring the service to you at the standard capped Living Longer Living Stronger client rates.  Facility owners do not have to pay any additional charge for the hire of the Instructors, who have appropriate levels of equipment, or can use your existing gym or fitness facilities.

Venue checks are performed in conjunction with facilities management to ensure client safety, instructors are fully insured and qualified, and records are exclusively stored digitally in order to ensure client privacy.

Let us bring Living Longer Living Stronger to your community.  If you want more information, download a guide to the service here.

To register your interest, contact COTA WA on (08) 9472 0104 or email us at
