Community Gym

The Community Gym is an exercise program, where each individual is provided with an individualised program that is designed specifically to achieve your health and fitness goals.

All Community Gym sessions are supervised by an Exercise Physiologist, who is able to provide instruction and assistance when required. Once participants become familiar with their program,  they are encouraged to complete the program independently.

 

Who is eligible to join?

The Community Gym sessions are appropriate for anyone managing a chronic condition (i.e. a condition that is currently lasting or anticipated to last for at least six months). The Community Gym sessions are best suited to those with good mobility and the ability to self-direct through an exercise program.

For the Community Gym sessions, there are no minimum or maximum attendance periods. We encourage participants to maintain a regular schedule in order to see maximum benefits to their health and fitness.

If you are not sure if it is appropriate for you, we recommend you schedule an appointment and the Exercise Physiologist will help determine the best course of action which may include referral to another CHIRP Community Health group or community based program.

How to join?

Before entering the group, all new participants are required to complete an individual assessment with the Exercise Physiologist.

A GP clearance may be required for some participants, and a list of current conditions and medications can be useful for the assessment process.

The assessment will include some physical activity, so we encourage you to wear comfortable clothing and shoes that allow you range of motion to complete simple exercises i.e. walking.

What is the cost?

The cost for the Community Gym sessions are $50.00 per 10 sessions.
