Get your heart pumping with our intensive exercise based therapy course written and delivered by Making Strides! 

Course includes a 12 night Wellness and Support Package which will give you access to regular package inclusion and the opportunity to come and experience an intensive exercise course.

Regular physical activity after sustaining a spinal cord injury can help improve independence, decrease pain, promote neural regeneration and reduce the risk of secondary complications. However, exercise can now present new challenges and barriers. During this course you will be exposed to a variety of modalities that will help you to achieve and maintain optimal physical and mental health and independence. The exercise programs are written and delivered by Making Strides and are individualised to meet each client’s goals and needs, helping you to achieve an improved quality of life.

Making Strides’ specialist accredited exercise physiologists are trained in prescribing and adapting exercises for the rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries. The course will take place at Sargood on Collaroy’s purpose built accessible gym, housing specific rehabilitation equipment not found in commercial gyms.

Exact inclusions and cost for the 2 week course are shown below.
