Exercise Physiology Group Classes

 

THE CARE AND SUPPORT ONLY A SMALL GROUP CAN GIVE

While iNform’s exercise physiology group classes are supervised by one of our Exercise Physiologists, the support you receive is much more than that. This is because the individuals in the small groups have walked in your shoes. They experience the same challenges and manage the same chronic conditions as you.

We offer a Diabetes Group Class which is designed to most effectively reduce your blood sugar levels, along with a Falls Prevention Group Class, for those who are at risk of falls and would like to learn the most appropriate strategies to reduce this risk.

If you would like to learn more about these classes, please read on to find out more or feel free to call or email us for more information.

Diabetes Group Class Program

TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS

Do you suffer from type 2 diabetes or are you at risk of developing it? We know it already affects millions of Australians and our current, mainstream lifestyle has primed a diabetes time bomb with its excess of sugar, simple carbohydrates, alcohol and lack of exercise. This is one of the most serious risks facing Australia and if this includes you, then iNform’s Diabetes group class program is a perfect option for taking back control over the disease.

We have trawled through the research, reviewed other programs and then integrated this evidence-based, structured progressive resistance training program for people with, or those at risk of developing, Type 2 diabetes.

This program will help you be part of your own diabetes intervention. And we can say that with confidence because this program has been proven to improve blood glucose control in Type 2 diabetes patients.

As a spin-off effect, you will also find your general fitness improves, along with your weight management and quality of life.

Why not invite a friend or family member to do the program with you? Forward this page to them and then phone or email us today to find out when our next classes are running.

Falls Prevention

ARE YOU READY TO MASTER GRAVITY ONCE MORE?

iNform’s ‘Masters of Gravity’ program delivers exercise based falls prevention group classes for older adults to reduce falls, fear of falling and increase independence and quality of life.

With the direct cost of falls now costing Australians over $558 million a year along with an ageing population, there is more need than ever to reduce your risk. However, falling or the fear of falling can cause a downward spiral where you tend to reduce your activity which in turn increases your risk of a future fall.

Therefore it is extremely important that you can regain the trust in your body through improving your balance and strength. In fact, an appropriately designed intervention program can prevent falls in older adults by up to 40%.

iNform provides a safe and welcoming environment supervised by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist. Classes are made up of no more than 8 adults and each individual has personalised exercises based on their goals. The program has shown proven results in measures of strength and balance.
