What condition or health issue do you work with your Accredited Exercise Physiologist to manage?
I have Ischemic heart disease. I am also insulin resistant, controlled with diet, exercise and a little medication.
How did you come to work with an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
During a conversation at a community centre I was told about a new gym at The Centre for Healthy Ageing (now Uniting Senirs Gym Lilyfield). I visited the centre and spoke to an exercise physiologist and joined.
Have you always been active or were you prescribed exercise as part of your treatment management? If not, what were your initial thoughts, did you want to exercise?
I have generally led an active life. After bypass heart surgery it was suggested that walking would help recovery and I continued this. I have never considered a gym until Ivisits Seniors Gym. I thought a program here would add more variety. I was keen to regain my fitness levels.
