Why should I exercise?

Exercise has significant health benefits for our heart, body and mind. We know that exercise can help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. We know that exercise can help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. Exercise should be enjoyable and fun, however in Australia less than half of adults get the recommended amount of exercise per day.

How much do I need to do?

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) for adults aged between 18-64 years, 150 – 300 minutes of moderate intensity (able to keep conversation) exercise per week, or 75 – 150 minutes of vigorous (unable to keep conversation) physical exercise per week. This means at least 30 minutes most, preferably all, days per week. Whilst this is the recommended amount, any exercise is better than nothing. Even doing 10mins per day can add up to changes in the long term. Common activities include walking, running, cycling or swimming.

In combination with aerobic (cardiovascular) exercise ideally we want to incorporate two muscle strength sessions per week. We can do most of these sessions at home and can include movements such as squats, lunges, push ups etc.

What you can expect from each session:

  • 1 on 1 or small group sessions.
  • We have a clean and safe facility
  • Clear plan which is progressed overtime. We explain everything.
  • We will help reduce your painget you back moving and achieving your movement goals.
