ALLAMBIE – Adult Gym Program (Saturdays)

Exercising can be so much fun, motivating and even social when you're amongst a group of mates and peers.

However, with few accessible community gyms, people with a disability can often find it difficult to enjoy the benefits of a regular exercise program.

Each Saturday our Allambie gym featuring modified equipment and supervised by staff experienced in disability, runs three back-to-back programs for adults with mixed abilities.

Run by an experienced Exercise Physiologist and Allied Health Assistant, our clients are gently put through their paces; performing exercises specifically selected to suit their abilities and personal goals.

With each group comprising approx. 3-5 participants, these programs provide our clients with a unique opportunity to get fit and connect with friends.

DAY: Saturdays  - starting as soon as possible

TIME:  9am-12 Noon

LOCATION: Cerebral Palsy Alliance, 187 Allambie Road, Allambie Heights
