This course is a set of 6 sessions, 45 minutes in length.
It can be spread over a period of 6-8 weeks.
It will consist of an exercise component and an education component.
The exercise component will be a combination of aerobic exercises and strength training.
The education component will be individualised to you, but can consist of discussions surrounding:

Towards the end of the course we will formulate a plan surrounding how you can continue your exercises when the course ends.
You will be provided with an exercise booklet to complete in between sessions and a booklet with the information from the education sessions.
