STABILITY, balance, core and strength group activities are being offered by the Sunshine Coast Council under its Healthy Sunshine Coast Seniors program which starts this month.

The program is aimed improving the health of over 55 year olds by offering a range of free and low-cost classes in six locations across the Coast.
