Gymstick For Older Adults Live Virtual Workshop 9am – 4.30pm (AEST) Sunday 23rd July 2023

The Gymstick for Older Adults education will provide personal trainers, group exercise instructors, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists with the tools to offer their clients varied, safe, appropriate and effective workouts.

Gymstick is a unique device that allows users to perform many functional movement patterns that can progressively become more challenging. With its innovative design and durable construction, the Gymstick provides an excellent means of performing strength training exercises safely at home or in any other location where traditional gym equipment is unavailable.


Resistance or strength training is essential to a healthy lifestyle, particularly for older adults. As we age, we experience a gradual loss of muscle mass and strength, a condition known as sarcopenia, which can lead to frailty, falls, and decreased independence.

Adding resistance training to your workouts has been shown to counteract the adverse effects of aging by increasing muscle strength, mass, and power. In addition, it has been linked to improved bone density, increased metabolism, and reduced risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.

The Gymstick is an excellent tool for resistance training with older adults. It is lightweight, easy to use, and non-threatening. It is an ideal choice for those who may not feel comfortable with traditional weights or machines. With the Gymstick, older adults can perform various exercises that target multiple muscle groups and improve overall functional fitness.

You can micro-load the resistance to suit your client or participants. As a result, you can use Gymstick anywhere, whether at home or in your local park, with just about no setup required. And if you do want to take it on the road, it comes with its own carrying case, and it quickly pulls apart, so you don't have to worry about finding space!

This workshop will show you how to use the Gymstick safely and effectively so you can start using it with your clients immediately. Even though this workshop is designed specifically for older adults, anyone at any age level can benefit from using the Gymstick.


This education includes:

  • How the Gymstick can cater to different needs: Physical and cognitive abilities, injuries, flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.
  • Provide modifications and develop functional training to suit the client's specific needs.
  • How to safely challenge balance, proprioception, muscle strength and endurance, and joint stability.

You will receive the following:

  • A comprehensive manual of information and exercises
  • Lifetime access to the recording of the virtual workshop
  • 7 Fitness Australia CECs
  • 30 FITREC points
