Strength for Life is a progressive training program designed to improve your strength and fitness. Normally, you attend classes held in a local gym, council facility or community centre and gradually increase the level of work you do to develop your strength. The charge for the classes is very reasonable.
New participants must have an online assessment before they join a class. Some classes are run by physiotherapists or exercise physiologists, - these are known as Tier 1 providers. They are trained to work with people who have chronic health conditions or injuries (as well as other people).
With these professionals, the assessment costs a maximum of $85, which includes your individual exercise program. If you have a chronic condition, you can get Medicare funding for this under Telehealth (you will need a referral from your doctor). Classes then cost a maximum of $15.
Tier 1 providers are:
Oatley: Dragana, 1300 327 434 or Dragana.Bozinovski@3bridges.org.au
Taree: Manning Aquatic and Leisure Centre, 6550 0500 or email@example.com
