For over 40 years, Keiser has been changing the way people of diverse ages and abilities exercise, while helping to improve their performance and quality of life.
As we become more aware of our needs to embrace overall wellness as we get older, our owners are today demanding more from their fitness centre, with studies showing that between the ages of 30-80 you lose approximately 50% of your strength.
Keiser’s philosophy is about empowering the older generation with the knowledge, tools and equipment they need to maintain their optimum level of health. With the right training programme, it can help reduce avoidable hospital readmissions, improve overall fitness levels & mental wellbeing, and act as a bridge to therapy services.
Using Keiser equipment within our developments is key: Keiser technology is designed to reduced shock loading to muscles, connective tissues and joints, allowing workout regimens to safely improve physical performance in ways not seen with traditional strength-training methods.
We believe that mental and physical wellbeing walk hand in hand - partnering with Keiser will help break down the barriers that some people feel about getting into the gym. Keiser equipment is easy to use and is perfect for people starting their fitness journey or who are used to using similar equipment.
Keiser’s equipment and programs are developed with everyone in mind, from the performance athlete to the older adult.
Keiser equipment is perfect for our developments because:
- Machines have a zero lb/kg starting resistance on most machines
- Consistent resistance at any speed, from slow to explosive so less shifting of resistance that can cause injury
- True functional training for strength at any speed
- Gradual small-increment resistance increase option
- Simple, push-button controls
- Easy step in, (not up) design

Aromatherapy works on three main levels: through the sense of smell, through absorption and through absorption via skin.
Smell: The sense of smell is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. As we breathe in the aromas of the essential oils, it can trigger emotional and even physical responses and allow vivid memory recall of people or places.
Absorption: Inhalation of the essential oils is especially effective within the respiratory system as their antibacterial and antiviral properties make them ideal for maintaining a healthy respiratory system. This includes the sinuses, throat and chest and also to help relieve symptoms of infections and allergies.
Absorption through the skin: Most essential oils have antibacterial properties; some are antiviral, antifungal and/or anti-inflammatory. Essential oils also contain antioxidants which help to prevent cell damage and protect against the build-up of toxic waste in skin cells, thereby helping reduce signs of ageing.
By penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin, essential oils can have a positive effect on the skin, such as optimizing the cellular renewal process, enhancing blood circulation and addressing problems such as acne, eczema and ageing skin.
