Exercise as Medicine® NZ is a charitable trust specialising in exercise for people with neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, MS and stroke, and long-term conditions like cancer, cardiac, diabetes, osteoporosis, and arthritis.
We hold specialist group exercise classes for Cardiac (BounceBACK), Prostate Cancer (Prost-FIT), Parkinson’s (Amplitude) Older Adults (Use it or Lose it) and Men over 65 (Men’s circuits).
As the logo suggests, we use elements from sports, dance,Tai Chi, yoga, balance work, strength and resistance, brain training, cardio and a bunch of other things to mix it up and make it FUN.
Because of their commitment to supporting people living with long-term conditions, we choose to work with the team at BodyFix Gym.
We are pleased to acknowledge the recent assistance of Southern Trust in granting $7000 to enable us to purchase the Elevate Jump Trainer and Rower. This new equipment will make a considerable difference to the lives of our clients who are recovering from neurological conditions including stroke, Parkinson’s and MS.
