This event is open to those 50 years of age and older in Oxford and the surrounding area who are interested in learning more about their current physical function, fitness and balance.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to complete a number of functional health, strength, fitness and balance tests and will receive a booklet of their results and reference values to compare against. We will also provide attendees with some simple guidance on ways to improve your physical activity, strength and balance.

You will work with our staff or students to do the series of tests and questionnaires. It is expected that it will take approximately 1-1.5 hours to complete all the tests and discuss your results. To ensure every attendee can do all the tests without being rushed and with sufficient support and guidance upon registration you will be assigned to a 1.5-hour slot with approximately 15 people. We will confirm your slot with you before the event.
