SERVICES

At Heart Health and Fitness, we offer both face-to-face and online services.

During your first exercise physiology consultation, we will collect information regarding your current and previous health status and exercise levels. We will also discuss any goals you have and together will devise an exercise program which can be completed through the clinic, your own gym or at home. You may also undergo some physical assessments that will assist us with your program prescription to ensure it is safe and effective.

Subsequent consultations can be used for one-on-one training sessions or to review and re-assess.  During the review consultation, program adjustments (including progressions, regressions and alterations) can be made as required, assessments and goals can be reviewed and any questions will be answered.

Strong Hearts Program

The Strong Hearts program combines group exercise and engaging education sessions to provide patients with the skills and knowledge to make and maintain long-term heart healthy lifestyle changes. Measurements of physical ability, cardiovascular disease risk factors, psychological well-being and lifestyle behaviours are taken before and at three timepoints following the Strong Hearts program to ensure patients are progressing and troubleshoot any arising issues and concerns the patient may have.

The program consists of 10 weekly, 90-minute sessions (45 minutes of exercise followed by 45 minutes of education) running in line with the school terms:

Term 1 - 4th February, 2019

Term 2 - 29th April, 2019

Term 3 - 22nd July, 2019

Term 4 - 14th October, 2019

At Heart Health and Fitness, we specialise in creating exercise and lifestyle programs specific to your current needs and goals. Regular physical activity and exercise has been shown time and time again to improve quality of life, vitality and physical function not only in healthy individuals but also those with chronic (long-term) and complex health conditions. Check out our 'Exercise Programs" page to find out more about some of the exercise programs we run and the conditions for which they have positive impacts on. 

To help you fit exercise into your healthy new lifestyle we have Open Class Sessions where you can come into the clinic and complete your program. During these times, our exercise physiologists will be available to answer any questions, ensure you are using the correct technique and adjust and progress your program as required. 

Open Class Sessions are on:

Tuesday's: 7:00am - 12:00pm, 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Thursday's: 7:00am - 12:00pm, 3:00pm - 6:00pm

Casual and multi-class passes are available. All class packs carry a 6 month expiry date.

A dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan is the gold standard measure of body composition. This scan uses very low dose radiation (roughly equivalent to the radiation you would receive on a flight to Sydney) to assess the amount of muscle, bone and fat in your body, and where it is. You will be given a 2-page report and expert explanation of your results.

An aerobic capacity (VO2max) test is the gold standard measure of fitness or cardiorespiratory capacity. Information from this test can be used to assess your maximum aerobic capacity (fitness), metabolic/ventilator thresholds and risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Information from this test can also be used to prescribe exercise intensity specific to your abilities and thresholds which will maximise your performance and fitness gains with training.

VO2max tests can be completed on a treadmill or bicycle ergometer (please advise us in advance of your preference).

For this test to be accurate, you must give a maximal effort. As such, you may be asked to get medical clearance prior to completing this test. A quick and simple screening questionnaire can be administered over the phone to assess your potential risk of an adverse event during exercise.
