The Diamond Creek Community Centre supports senior’s health and wellbeing with a range classes and social activities throughout the year with our Active Movers range of classes.
Active Movers classes are safe, fun and great for beginners. Classes include easy to learn low impact cardiovascular exercise, strength and stretching activities. Each class varies and can use steps, resistance bands, weights, balls, abdominal exercises and stretching, giving you a whole-body workout.
While currently we can’t be with you physically at the centre, there are many ways to stay connected with us:
