Lungs in action or our “lungs” group, is designed for those that are living with long-term respiratory conditions such as a chronic lung disease.
Many participants come from hospital based pulmonary rehabilitation classes. However, it is also suitable for those with heart failure who often experience breathlessness, or those that enjoy the social environment of an exercises based class.
Our classes are run by a highly trained exercise physiologist in a circuit based class. The goal is to work as hard as you can within YOUR capabilities. The ages within the class and ability level can vary greatly so the exercise physiologist running the class will help supervise and modify and scale any activity that you are struggling to complete. This way so that you are still getting the greatest benefit possible. The exercise circuit changes exercises every month to keep it interesting. These exercises will include those that challenge your strength, balance, cardiovascular fitness, and mobility.

Why not come down and give it a go!
