Our Exercise Physiologists are NDIS registered and provide a gold standard of clinical exercise interventions to help improve the health and wellbeing of clients under the NDIS who have permanent and significant disability, from children and adolescents to adults aged under 65.

Funding for exercise physiology can come from the improve health and wellbeing and improve daily living categories within the capacity building budget (https://www.ndis.gov.au/participants/using-your-plan/managing-your-plan/support-budgets-your-plan#capacity-building-supports-budget) of your NDIS plan.

HOW CAN AN EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST HELP PEOPLE ON THE NDIS?

For those with a disability, exercise is much more than becoming a little fitter. An exercise physiologist will help you improve your quality of life by:

  1. Building strengthfunction, and fitness
  2. Improving your physical and mental health
  3. Preventing future health conditions
  4. Becoming more independent and make activities of daily living easier
  5. Increasing community engagement and social skills e.g. participation in sports

 

Longevity’s AEPs are experts at evaluating, designing, and delivering safe and effective exercise programs tailored to your specific needs, preferences, and goals.

We will be with you every step of the way, progressing at a suitable pace to match your ability and fitness level. Our aim is to make exercise as fun and enjoyable as possible and we love to get creative with physical activity by incorporating games, challenges, and sport specific movements.

Types of training we use include:

  • Cardio Training
  • Resistance (Strength) Training
  • Functional exercises
  • Flexibility and Mobility
  • Balance

Longevity believes trust is a big key to success, which is why we aim to build long-lasting relationships with each and every client.
