It’s no secret that exercise at any age has its benefits. But for seniors, exercising has been proven to prevent disease, reduce symptoms of chronic illnesses like arthritis and diabetes, improve muscle tone and bone density, reduce high blood pressure, improve mood and often provides a social element too.

Pace at Sleeman is Brisbane’s premier fitness centre offering affordable memberships, quality equipment and expert advice. Located at the Sleeman Sports Complex, Pace caters for all kinds of people at all levels of fitness, including tailoring a training plan to suit each member’s needs.

Pace member John Horton said he loves that he can stay healthy and socialise in one place.

“I’m 72 now, and for the last 20-plus years, I’ve been coming to Pace to exercise, stay healthy and see my friends,” he said.

“Pace is a great gym for people of all ages, particularly seniors, as it has great facilities, fitness advice, plenty of choice of classes and a social aspect.”

Health and Fitness Manager David Trahair said Pace members have access to a huge selection of group classes, the fitness centre, and the heated pools, as well as tailored individual fitness advice delivered by highly qualified fitness staff.

“At Pace, our motto is ‘Fitness at Your Pace’. We strive to assist members in their pursuit of optimal health and wellbeing,” David said.

“More than 50 per cent of our members are in the 50-plus age bracket. They love coming here to exercise, and there’s a great social community for our senior members,” he said.

“If you’ve been thinking about joining a gym or just getting out and meeting new people, Pace at Sleeman might be just what you’re looking for.”

During Seniors Month, Pace is offering an introductory membership offer of two weeks for $29*.
