#1 strength training solution for 50+ / Retirement Living, Aged Care
HUR for 50+/Community gyms
Providing a gym experience for the over 50s is easy to get wrong. This is an age group that wants gym equipment to be easy and safe to use in a setting which is pleasant and congenial. This is not about your gym junkies; it’s about enticing the gym-phobic to start exercising so they can live their lives to the full.
HUR gym equipment is silent, smooth and automated. No cables to trap fingers, no uncomfortable and ill-fitting seats, no over- or under-exercising, just easy and motivating exercising which is suitable for all.
“We don’t stop exercising because we get old, we get old because we stop exercising.”
HUR for Retirement Living
The ‘baby-boomer’ generation now considering moving to retirement living is said to be more discerning and demanding in what they are looking for from their retirement. Life expectancy is now well into the 80s and the expectation is that retirement is the time to start the third phase of living – more time to live life to the full.
Staying fit and active is a key part of this, as is developing and maintaining community.
HUR equipment is safe, easy to use, motivating and effective. Our equipment will enhance your village and will provide your clients with the kind of gym they are looking for.

HUR for Aged Care
Providing exercise opportunities for our oldest citizens may be a fairly new concept for some but the evidence is clear from all around the world – the way to fight frailty is through physical and mental strength training.
With HUR equipment even the frailest can exercise in a safe and rewarding way and so maintain or even recover the ability to live independently.
Gyms with HUR equipment and places where miracles happen every day.
Periods of inactivity are bad for us. Our muscles weaken alarmingly quickly and joints stiffen.
The earlier that rehab can be safely started the better the outcomes will be and so the benefits of zero starting load and “natural transmission” through air resistance are easy to see. With HUR pneumatic resistance rehab can be safely started as soon as movement is allowed.
Safety features such as range limiters and the ability to exercise left-right independently, along with measurable range-of-motion and power output mean progress is safe and meaningful. SmartTouch software means all progress is evidence based.

What’s more, all of the ‘Easy-Access’ range is also suitable for non-wheelchair users so whether you are looking to develop a gym dedicated to wheelchair users or want to provide a gym for all, we have the equipment range to meet your needs.

HUR Australia is leading the way for 50+ and Seniors' Gyms
Many geriatric exercise studies emphasize that muscular strength gained via senior exercise is directly related to the management of balance, walking speed, climbing stairs and prevention of falls. Maintaining a sufficient level of strength is vital for ensuring senior citizens ability to cope independently in everyday life. Senior strength training is needed in addition to cardio training to maintain the muscle mass throughout senior years. As far as senior exercise is concerned, it is essential to have safe and easily accessible devices.
Adjustments of HUR machines can be made without getting off the machine and range limiters provide additional safety by reducing risk of injury. You can complete the selection with Easy Access line machines enabling the independent exercising of wheelchair users. Read more about HUR 50+ and Seniors' Gyms.
