Diabetes 600x300

NEAD (Nutrition Exercise & Diabetes)

Exercise & Diet play an important role in the management of Type 2 Diabetes. We have designed a program that aims to provide education on the benefits of exercise for Diabetes, but also to teach individuals how to exercise effectively at home without the use of expensive equipment and gym member ships and ways to establish healthy eating patterns.

 

Program Outline

You will undergo an individual an initial assessment (at your choice of clinic), where one of our Exercise Physiologists will determine your suitability for group classes. From here, if eligible, you may attend the classes. The classes run weekly for 4 weeks. The classes compose of both an exercise and education component where we cover many topics which relate to Diabetes Exercise & Nutrition.
