Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Exercise Group

Individuals with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus are eligible to be referred by their GP to a group class with the fee largely subsidised by Medicare.  Following an initial assessment, participants attend 8 Group Exercise classes as part of the subsidised program.
A tailored program will be developed for each participant following the initial health and physical assessment.  Each 60 minute class will incorporate cardiovascular, strength and balance exercises that can be completed at your own pace.  How can we help?

We offer Diabetes classes where an Accredited Exercise Physiologist supervises a group exercise class tailored to your individual ability and needs. These sessions are not only there to help you learn more about how to manage your condition, but to gain confidence by exercising in a fun, safe and social environment.
