How to get your spark back...
8 Days to a Happier, Healthier You

As Winter draws us in - and with the revolving lockdowns - it's easy to put your health needs on the back-burner. 

This course will help you to confidently undertake an 8-week Course (one group for men, and one group for women)- that

- is designed to meet your health goals,

- helps you to 'keep you honest' with your exercise/healthy eating program, 

- enables you to meet others and

- learn and enjoy a talk by other health-related professionals while having refreshments.

Commencing Wednesday 28th July (Term 3)

Choose your preferred time - Group 1 at 11.45am or Group 2 at 12.45pm

 

We are now accepting bookings for this 'proven' program that will change your health outcomes.

About Your Facilitator: Dr Natalie de Morton, our highly qualified and experienced Physiotherapist, has more than 20 years of extensive clinical experience across hospital and community settings in Australia and overseas. She completed her Research Honours thesis on measuring lower limb muscle strength and later went on to complete her PhD in 2007 at Monash University on measuring mobility and the effects of exercise on older people. As clinical head at the Peter McCallum Cancer Centre she designed exercise programs for people with cancer and survivors and her interest and specific expertise is in helping people to beat the ageing process.   

Personalised Program:  Starting with a one-hour 1:1 health assessment with Natalie, she will then design an individualised program for you,  to address your health needs and help you achieve your goals.  This may be around healthy eating, exercise and mental fitness. 

Measure your Progress:  Using your individualised program you will be able to track your progress, week by week.

 

Weekly 1-hour program:  You will participate in a 1/2 hour exercise program each week, following your plan, and under Natalie's supervision.  

The weekly program includes a refreshment break - and a chance to hear and learn from an impressive line-up of speakers on difference health aspects. 

Doing it Together - a Key Success Factor:  With a maximum of 8 people in the group, you will be there for each other -  to 'cheer each other along'. We find that the group jells well together, and natural friendships can form.  Last term, the group decided to continue their weekly exercise program together, as a self-led group. 

Measure your Achievements: At the end of the program, you will again meet with Nat 1:1 to review your progress - and perhaps choose your own next steps. 

Claim on your Health Insurance: 1:1 Appointments for Consultation with Dr de Morton - available now ($100 - claimable on private health cover)
