Group Programmes

Clinic Group Programmes

For continued exercise therapy, AER offers cost effective group exercise sessions. Whilst the program is completed as a group, each patient completes their program individually.

Moving with Type 2 Diabetes

Medicare services are now available for people with type 2 diabetes provided by Accredited Exercise Physiologists who are registered providers with Medicare Australia.

The programme will take a multidisciplinary approach to the management of type 2 diabetes. The programme will consist of 8, 1 hour sessions (educational and practical), plus a 45 minute initial assessment. Topics covered will include:

  • Nutritional principles for type 2 diabetics including glycaemic index, glycaemic load, fats, protein, carbohydrates, portion sizes and food labeling.
  • Nutritional guidelines for weight management and optimal cardiovascular function
  • Hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia, blood test results, blood glucose monitoring
  • Physical activity guidelines for people with type 2 diabetics.
  • Exercise strategies for weight management and optimal cardiovascular function

 Additional to the information sessions, the group will be required to complete 8 practical physical activities. At the completion of the programme each individual client will have improved self management behaviours, particularly in the areas of physical activity, diet, medications, achieving set goals, and problem solving. Numbers are limited to 12 per group.

Living Longer Living Stronger

The Living Longer Living Stronger programme is an evidence based programme that encourages and supports change in the health and fitness sectors to achieve improved health, quality of life and the fitness of people aged over 50 years. The programme seeks to maximise opportunities for people to engage in affordable, high quality, results orientated, strength programmes over the longer term.

The LLLS programme optimises conditions for social engagement of participants both to foster compliance with the training programme and to minimise the social isolation frequently experienced by those seniors with poor health.
