Falls Prevention Program:
More than one in three people aged 65 or over fall at least once a year with many falling more often. Falls can lead to social, psychological, physical and economic impacts on the individual, families and/or carers. Falls are a serious problem but can be prevented.
There are combination of external factors that can lead to a fall including:
- Hazards around the home or public spaces
However there are internal factors that an individual has control over and can improve to help reduce the risk of a fall
E-Leet physiology provide one-on-one and group classes specifically focusing on balance and strength components to aid in reducing the risk of a fall and maintaining an individual’s level of independence and mobility.
Diabetes Management Classes
Exercise or physical activity can assist in managing Type 2 Diabetes by improving insulin resistance therefore reducing blood glucose levels. It allows your muscles to become more active and use more glucose to perform.
Activity should be at a moderate intensity and should combine both resistance (weighted) and aerobic (cardio) exercise. This will aid in managing Diabetes but also address other aspects of health such as:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduce risk of heart disease
- Reduce stress
- Improved sleep/mood
- Increased energy levels
E-Leet Physiology provide one-on-one and group classes specifically focusing on prescribing a range of exercises to address these aspects and supervision to ensure you are performing them correctly.
