Exercise Classes

About Exercise Classes

A qualified fitness instructor is contracted to deliver a comprehensive holistic exercise program each week. The exercise class also provides a social element and is a great way to get people into their first social event. Meeting other stroke survivors and creating relationships. Our exercise program has been instrumental in helping people in their progress toward social inclusion while gaining strength and balance. Through observation 80% of people who attend the exercise classes regularly improve their coordination, balance and cognitive function. We also provide for people with other disabilities, MS, mental health, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, brain injury and the older person. Volunteers assist with providing morning tea, setting up the hall and assisting clients where needed. The weekly program gives clients an opportunity to talk with the Stroke Community Coordinator, who facilitates the program, about any issues they are having and is a perfect way for the coordinator to keep up to date with the wellbeing of clients.
