This two tiered approach has created a continuum of specific exercise aimed at older clients who have a history of falling.

Both organisations aim to deliver preventative health interventions through an exercise referral pathway to reduce the growing number of falls and to combat the associated costs linked to the health and social sector.

  • Prevent hospital admissions that occur as a result of a fall

  • Provide a service to meet the needs of an ageing and growing population

Gym In Motion is looking for a fitness instructor to safely deliver their fitness programs as per their guidelines.
