Lifestyle Kids is a one-to-one or group exercise therapy and rehabilitation program delivered in person or online for children with specific medical conditions and/or for those who just want to improve their health and fitness. The program aims are to:

  • increase functional capacity, aerobic fitness and muscle strength and endurance
  • improve self-esteem and self-efficacy
  • re-integrate the child into peer and community-based activities
  • manage or prevent chronic disease, injury and disability

Sessions run every afternoon afterschool (face to face or virtually) at 4.00pm and 5.00pm (including during the holidays) and include the following:

Initial Assessment

A lifestyle and functional assessment to determine the child’s physical capacity and develop specific activity goals.

Assessments are completed and the program is delivered by our fourth year student Exercise Physiologists, under the supervision of one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists. For children who are recovering from a medical condition, this program is delivered in liaison with treating medical and health professionals. Parent involvement in the consultations is encouraged.

We recommend children attend a session at least twice weekly for up to 1 hour duration. Indoor and outdoor activities are conducted addressing cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, muscle strength and endurance, motor control and co-ordination, self-esteem and self-efficacy.

Lifestyle Kids runs every week of the year, except during our Christmas and New Year two week shutdown period. The program runs on visit passes at the cost of $195.00 for a 10-pack. The assessment is one voucher and is completed by our student exercise physiologists under the supervision of one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists. For more complex cases, the assessment will be conducted by our clinical Accredited Exercise Physiologist in accordance with our consultation fees.

The program runs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4.00-6.00 pm.
