Runaway Bay Personal Trainer for Women over 50 Reveals How to Overcome the Tiresome Effects of Ageing
QUEENSLAND, Australia March 2014 – According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, musculoskeletal conditions – such as arthritis and osteoporosis – are one of the major causes of chronic pain and disability in Australia. Rheumatoid arthritis is the most serious form of arthritis, affecting around half a million Australians, almost 60% of which are women. Women aged 45 years and over were considerably more likely to have arthritis than men. In particular, at ages 75 years and over, 59.9% of women had arthritis compared with 42.3% of men.*
Lyn Collett, owner of a Curves ladies gym in Runaway Bay and personal trainer for women over 50 says she opened her gym specifically for women. Lyn says, “We have ladies at our centre who have Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, bad necks and/or backs, bad knees, Parkinson’s disease, Addison’s, high blood pressure, had heart attacks, are overweight and obese. All of them love the unique 30-minute resistance and cardio workout that enable them to move freely, reduce pain, firm up, increase strength, and lead a much better quality of life.” www.curves.com.au
Lyn says, “Exercise always helps. It doesn’t matter what the condition; at our fitness centre, if you can get yourself there, you will improve. It’s true. The human body is a machine that’s meant to work and, if done correctly, with all due care for that lady’s individual condition – which we provide advice on – then we get some great results in very little time.”
Lyn adds, “Some of our clients are over 80 and it’s just amazing to get the chance to help them regain some mobility, get up off the floor easily again, reduce their pain medications, and just have better quality of life.”

Tina Bale from Runaway Bay, Queensland, shares her delight with her Curves membership. She says, “Hi Lyn, I am very pleased that you are the new owner of Curves at Biggera Waters. Being employed in the Aged Care Industry as an AIN for 36 years, the physical duties required started to have an adverse effect on my body, resulting in Osteo Arthritis in my lower back and hands. After 12 months of attending Curves I have noticed a vast improvement in my flexibility and movement. My visits to Curves have become a very important part of my life. As well as my health improving, I have found the social side of Curves very enjoyable and the staff really helpful.”
