Coffs Coast Health Club eNews-November 2016


Do you know someone over the age of 65 who is at risk of having a fall? 9a4d3bd0-14ad-4add-9e5c-a7e5472a6ba5

Recent research has outlined the major health impacts falls are having on our older community members, ranging from broken bones and lost independence to life threatening injuries and untimely death. Mid North Coast Physio & Coffs Coast Health Club, the team are passionate about helping you reduce and prevent falls before they occur.  To do this they are making the Stepping On Program available to the Coffs Coast community, with a program starting soon in Coffs Harbour.

How does Stepping On work?
Stepping On is a community-based workshop designed for people over 65, offered once a week for seven weeks that builds your confidence in your own ability to reduce falls through education and gentle balance and strengthening exercises. In a small group setting, you will learn specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls, all run by our Occupational Therapist Natalie Webster. We use expert guest presenters such as Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Pharmacists, Council Safety Officers and Vision Experts to share knowledge on a range of topics, including vision, home hazards, medicines and practical exercises to improve strength and balance.

And the best news is – Stepping On is FREE.  It’s a government funded program with no cost to participants.  If you or someone you love could benefit from being a part of an upcoming program in Moonee, Toormina or Woolgoolga, please call our Mid North Coast Physio team on 1300 273747 to register your interest.

Members Movie Night – Food As Medicine!

Its Movie Time! The team at Healthy Inspirations are always wanting to educate you and inspire you so they would like to invite you to a FREE screening of “Food as Medicine”.

The Center for Disease Control reports that nearly half the population in the United States of America lives with at least one chronic disease. These diseases are the leading cause of death and disability. They are also the most costly and preventable of all health conditions in the country. It is imperative that we start changing our food culture now. ‘Food As Medicine’ follows the growing movement of using food to heal chronic disease. From individuals empowering themselves to change what is on their plates, to hospital groups administering vegetable Rx programs, we can already see the change happening around us. Join us on the journey of food, health, community and hope!

As Easy As Riding A Bike

Have you ever tried a CYCLE class upstairs at Coffs Coast Health
Club Toormina?

We have a fabulous CYCLE studio and offer a range of CYCLE classes. We have four fabulous instructors that teach a range of FREESTYLE and LES MILLS RPM Cycle classes.

You control the intensity of your ride and there is no tricky choreography to follow which means that Cycle classes are a fabulous class for the beginner right through to the fitness fanatic.  During a Cycle class you ride to the rhythm of motivating music while you take on the terrain.  Your instructor will lead the pack through hills, flats, mountain peaks, time trials and interval training.

Cycle classes are a great cardio workout and lots of FUN too.  Why not try one this week?  We have 6 great classes to choose from – 6am Monday morning, 5.30pm Monday evening, 9.30am Tuesday morning, 5.30pm Wednesday evening, 6am Friday morning and 8.30am Saturday morning.  See you on the bike!



Daniel Tempest!
Congratulations to our very own Personal Trainer, Boxing & Circuit Instructor Dan. He is the Campus Director of the Coffs Coast Campus of The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers & has been shortlisted from over 100 other Campus Directors Australia wide. Dan only took over the Campus 12 months ago but has done such a wonderful job that he has been nominated in two categories – Rookie of The Year & Campus of The Year.

AIPT as its known, is the preferred Registered Training Organisation of health club owners all over the country due to their high standard of student training which is why they have the highest course completion to job rating in the industry. They provide real training, in real health clubs, by real personal trainers which is why we are privileged to have them running their courses out of our clubs.

If you or anyone you know would like to become a personal trainer, please contact Dan directly on 0432 579 221 to steer you in the right direction. He has also recently created a Facebook page called Coffs Coast Fitness Careers which is definitely worth following if you are interested in the fitness industry.
