Community Programs

Aquamoves offers a selection of specialised programs to assist in improving the health and wellbeing of specific community groups.

Huff N Puff

Huff N Puff is a maintenance exercise program for people who have completed pulmonary rehabilitation.

The program involves both aerobic and strength training exercises, with participants undertaking individualised programs. 

All sessions are supervised by a qualified fitness instructor and participants are encouraged to self-monitor as taught in pulmonary rehabilitation.

Benefits
