Free group exercise program for women
Diabetes NSW-ACT will hold another Move with Women program, with free group exercise sessions for women of all fitness levels and backgrounds, starting in February in Woy Woy.
The program involves a one-hour group exercise session every week for nine weeks, with an additional 30 minute health education session every fortnight.
Promoted as "fun, social and motivating", the program incorporates many of the factors that contribute to women's health: exercise sessions, tips to eating healthy, techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, and an opportunity to connect with other women, according to marketing coordinator Ms Loni Pettett.
"The program is delivered in a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable setting, by qualified exercise physiologists who have experience working with groups of women in all different stages of life."
Ms Pettett said the program involved a one-on-one consultation with an exercise physiologist, nine one-hour group exercise classes suitable to their fitness level, a booklet which includes activities and health information for women, a resistance band and a final assessment.
She said the program also included "the opportunity to meet new people, create friendships and connect with other women?.
The program will take place at I-Fitness Exercise Physiology at 112 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, from Wednesday, February 2.
"This initiative is aimed at all women in the community.
"Unlike many of our other programs, you do not need to be diagnosed with diabetes to join."
Registration for the program may be made at movewithwomen.com.au/classes or by phone on 1800 328 951.
