If you have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, you are eligible to participate in a group program subsidised by Medicare to assist you in managing your diabetes and any other conditions or injuries you may have. The end goal of our type 2 diabetes management program is to help you build a healthy exercise routine and improve your overall health and fitness.
Our accredited exercise physiologists are experts at prescribing exercises specific to your current health and Type 2 Diabetes. We understand that managing type 2 diabetes and exercise can be daunting, but our diabetes exercise program is designed to be fun, enjoyable, and tailored to your health status. Attending once or twice a week will ensure optimal physical results and improvements in blood sugar levels.
What Can You Expect from Our Diabetes Exercise Program?
During the first appointment, we will take you through a thorough initial assessment to understand your current health, physical status, and exercise history and determine your goals. We will then help you develop a program that suits your needs and discuss additional methods to help manage your diabetes. We look forward to helping you develop a healthier lifestyle!
After your initial assessment, you will join our 8-week group program consisting of 60-minute classes. Our classes aim to educate you on diabetes and provide guided exercise sessions, where we will help you perform exercises safely and correctly. Our accredited exercise physiologists will ensure that the exercises are tailored to your physical abilities and medical conditions. The group classes will have a maximum of 10 participants, allowing our experts to provide personalized attention and ensure you are performing exercises safely. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to help you with managing type 2 diabetes effectively.
Exercise, paired with the correct diet, is extremely beneficial to the management of Type 2 diabetes. But we know it’s never fun to exercise alone. Through the Type 2 diabetes management program, we aim to perform exercises as a group in a team environment.

Participants of this program are all welcome to continue their exercising journey with us in their classes after the end of the 8 weeks.
What Should I Wear/Bring?
Wear comfortable clothing, sneakers/joggers. You will be doing some movements and exercising, so it is important for you to feel comfortable.
Make sure you bring your doctor’s referral for the Type 2 Diabetes Management Program (if claiming through medicare), a water bottle, and a towel.
How to Take Part?
To be eligible, you must have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Your GP will then be able to complete the Type 2 diabetes group referral form in addition to your management plan (GPMP). Referrals should be brought in with you to your appointment or emailed/faxed to us by the GP.
*Note: these are in addition to the 5x Medicare subsidised CDMP appointments
You are also welcome to join the group class privately without a GP referral. All you need to do is to contact us and schedule your initial assessment. These sessions may be subsidised by your private health fund.
