MacSeniors Exercise and Wellness Program

MacSeniors exercise and wellness program offers supervised aerobic and resistance training for community members who are 55 years of age and older. Personalized programs are designed for specialized exercise equipment based on the needs and fitness levels of each participant.


MacSeniors Exercise and Wellness Program

Our goal is to help seniors regain and maintain cardiovascular fitness, and muscle strength and endurance, which will prolong their mobility and independence. It’s not always possible to add years to your life, but we make it possible to add life to your years.

Community members have participated in our MacSeniors program for more than 20 years. The program began following completion of a research study examining the effects of long-term resistance training on dynamic strength, exercise capacity, muscle and bone. Participants in the study’s exercise and control groups were invited to continue with aerobic and resistance training at McMaster.

How to Join Download Referral Form

Before starting the program, participants need to ask their primary care physician to complete a referral form and fax it to us at 905-525-7629. An exercise stress test is no longer required unless indicated by your physician. Once we have received your referral form, we will contact you to set up an intake assessment with our Physiotherapist.

We are currently working to admit new members from our wait-list as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
