What sorts of physical activities do you like to do? Maybe you like gardening, tennis or walking. Maybe you have grandchildren that you love to play with and run around after.
As you get older, or due to accident or injury, you may find that you need to adjust the type, level and frequency of your physical activity. However, staying in good physical condition means that you can continue to do those activities you enjoy for as long as possible.
If you are 50 years of age or over, and would like some support, guidance or information on how to stay as fit and healthy as possible, then an ECH Wellness Centre may be the perfect option for you.
You will need to have an initial consultation with one of ECH’s allied health professionals, who will assess your physical condition and discuss your goals with you. You will then receive a personalised exercise program, specifically tailored to address your unique health and physical needs, including the activities you already do or would like to do.
You may choose to complete your program and personal workout on your own or with the guidance of a qualified and experienced exercise physiologist or fitness instructor. Regardless of your preference, you can be assured that an allied health or fitness professional will always be in attendance to supervise your progress in the gym and assist you as required.
To make sure you are comfortable at the Centre you will receive a full induction before commencing your program. All of the Wellness Centre gyms feature modern exercise equipment and staff are always on-hand to offer you expert advice, and to modify your program as required to make sure you will get the best outcome possible for you.
If you have a chronic disease condition, speak to your GP about how you might be able to access ECH’s extensive range of exercise classes under the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).
Every ECH Wellness Centre is air-conditioned for year round comfort, and they also have change rooms for your convenience. ECH Wellness Centres are located at Henley Beach, Greenacres and Morphett Vale, and there is also a centre in Victor Harbor which services the Fleurieu Peninsula.
ECH Wellness Centres also offer an extensive range of exercise classes . With Boxercise, Chi Balance, Pilates-style Core Fitness and Tai Chi, you are sure to find a class that is just right for you.
No matter your age, ECH Wellness Centre services are available to you on a competitive fee for service basis. If you have private health insurance you may be able to seek rebates from your provider, or if you are aged 65 years or over, you may qualify for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), or if you have a Home Care Package, you may be able to use some of this funding to access ECH’s gym and exercise classes and/or other Wellness Services.
