Diabetes in New South Wales & ACT has launched a new initiative that provides free group exercise programs to women of all ages, fitness levels, and backgrounds. The Movement with Women will include a one-hour group exercise session once a week for nine weeks, as well as an additional 30-minute health education session once every two weeks. “This fun, social, and motivating program includes the many factors that contribute to women’s health – exercise sessions, tips for healthy eating, techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, and the opportunity to connect with other women,” a spokeswoman for Diabetes NSW & ACT said. “The program is delivered in a safe, non-judgmental and comfortable environment by qualified exercise physiologists who have experience working with groups of women at all different stages of life.” The program will come to Eurobodalla Exercise Physiology in Batemans Bay from February 11, 2022, and will be managed by Tim Hughes. “For the past two years we’ve been running Beta, which is a free program for people with diabetes using exercise to help them manage it,” Hughes said. Diabetes NSW introduced this program a couple of months ago, and it’s something we’re really excited about. “We are going for nine weeks until the weekend before Easter, and we are going to look at cardio, strength and balance, and women can come in and gain a better understanding of those important aspects of fitness.” All the exercises we do can be modified so that people of any fitness level can get off “And as an exercise physiologist, we’re passionate about helping people of all ages and fitness levels lead healthier, happier lives,” Hughes said. We’re excited that we can help boost the health of the population.” I always appreciate educating people too — it’s great that more people seem to want to exercise, but you have to understand how he-she does.”
