What is Strong Bodies Strong Minds?

Strong Bodies Strong Minds is an inclusive clinic-based small group exercise session for adults with disabilities including those on the NDIS. The purpose of the session is to reduce isolation and encourage social engagement while exercising in a supportive and fun environment. Under the guidance of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, sessions are capped at 6 participants so we can adjust exercises to suit individual requirements. 

The focus of the exercise sessions includes global strength, coordination and balance. Utilising both free weights and larger gym equipment, the exercises are designed to improve general strength, stability, posture, flexibility, mobility and overall body awareness. During the sessions, weaknesses or imbalances will be targeted that may be contributing to pain or dysfunction. No previous exercise experience is required, and all levels are catered for. 

The sessions are specifically structured to encourage interaction between the participants, such as during the interactive group balance activities.  

The benefits of these exercise sessions extend beyond physical improvements and social interaction and can include a reduction in the symptoms of psychosocial conditions such as anxiety and depression or feelings of isolation. Additionally, group sessions enable participants with limited funding to stretch their funding further.
