FitLine Age & Opportunity for the over 50s

Published on September 13, 2021

FitLine is Age & Opportunity’s volunteer telephone support line designed to help those over the age of 50 who want to feel a bit fitter and healthier, but perhaps don’t have the motivation, confidence, or information on where or how to take that first step. The service is completely free. We’re encouraging people to free phone 1800 303 545 and learn more. After you’ve made that first call, a FitLine mentor will arrange a time to ring you every two weeks until you’re happy with your progress. FitLine mentors are volunteers who understand the challenges of getting active. They’ll give you information, advice and gentle encouragement to get moving, along with updates on what is happening in your local community. As we move into the colder months it is important to keep active in any way we can. FitLine mentors are able to offer guidance for each individual’s needs. For those who are working it’s important to make time for yourself to exercise and calls are planned to suit your busy schedule.
