Exercise is medicine

McLaren Vale Family Practice 40+ Gym


The 40+ Gym has been established to improve the health and well-being of the Southern Vales community over the age of 40. We provide a range of classes in a caring, comfortable, and accommodating environment, all of which are designed to help our members maintain their independence throughout the best years of their life.

With no mirrors, no huge machines, no doof-doof music, no muscle shirts, and no skimpy leotards you can feel comfortable in an environment that caters specifically to your health and fitness and rehabilitation needs.

The gym facilities are supervised and utilised by our Gym Director, Margret Reid. Dr Reid is also an exercise physiologist and oversees all gymnasium activities.

We regularly add new programmes and we welcome your suggestions.

We want you to enjoy coming to the gym and make it a regular activity.

As small as a 10% improvement in physical fitness can have significant benefits to your health.
