Maintaining motivation to exercise can be extremely difficult for those in our community who suffer from debilitating joint pain or arthritis. To combat the challenges faced by many of our patrons, Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre has introduced the six-week kickstart program, Hydro Functional.
“The program is designed for patrons to exercise at their own pace and in their own time,” said Chloe Northrope, Exercise Physiologist. “We’re here to support our community to ensure they’re able to exercise and work towards better health and wellbeing.
“Six weeks is the general length of time it takes for strength and power to improve. With the committed team at Gurri Wanyarra, our community are well supported, educated and connected through leisure and health.
“The Hydro Functional Kickstarter program includes a welcome pack with program details, activity diary and reading materials; a Telehealth appointment with an Aquatic Physiotherapist; weekly emails with personalised video programs; and check in’s with the patron’s physiotherapist throughout the program.
“Working alongside technology can be difficult for our more senior patrons, however, we’re able to work right alongside them and demonstrate the simplicity and ease by which they can take control of their health and wellbeing. An Aquatic Physiotherapist, is able to ascertain just what type of program our client needs and what they want to achieve over the six-week program,” Chloe said.
“The Hydro Functional Kickstarter isn’t just for seniors but is open to all in our community who suffer from joint pain or need additional rehabilitation support after an injury or illness. If our Aquatic Physio team don’t believe the program is a good fit for a patron, we’ll work with them towards finding a program that will benefit them in the long term,” Chloe concluded.
Hydro Functional Kickstarter is a six-week aquatic exercise program that is tailored specifically to a patron’s health needs. The weekly tutorials and instructions help people regain their fitness and develop a healthier and more active life.
