"We are all about the same age and enjoy doing the exercises" Heather Van Roosmalen Health and Wellness West
Heather Van Roosmalen discovered ECH’s Strength for Life classes while at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital with husband Martin.
“An ECH employee gave me a pamphlet for Henley Beach and asked if I would like to attend a class. “I said I didn’t know they offered that sort of thing and I thought it would be a good idea.” Heather has been attending weekly one-hour classes for about 12 months and is thoroughly enjoying it. “Jodie asks us what we can and can’t do, and if we have any health problems, and she adjusts the routine accordingly,” Heather says. “I do a warm up on the bike or the cross trainer, squats, weights, balance exercises and push ups, planking, ball exercises on my back and exercises for the stomach muscles. I like exercise and what Jodie has given me. I find it keeps me mobile and it’s an interest. It’s good for the mind and it’s a social thing as well. You can meet other people doing the same thing as you and you can chat. We are all about the same age and enjoy doing the exercises.”
