Thank you for the interest in the ‘Walk and Talk’ program.
This program is designed specifically for people going through cancer to engage in a walk and simple exercise program in an outdoor / or other setting.
At this stage, the program is only available in the local Adelaide area, however it is hoped in the near future to extend beyond this.
So for those in the Adelaide area…
The ‘Walk and Talk’ program is conducted in areas such as Linear Park / or similar uplifting environments and run by a fully qualified Fitness Professional who has undertaken Real Time Enhancements specific training around the BREATHE for Life approach that is based on empowerment and promotion of self learning and exercise.
The program runs for 6 weeks at a time and is designed to not only achieve physical, mental, social and psychological benefits – it provides motivation, basic information, tools and learning to become more confident and independent with exercise.
A requirement if you are going through cancer/treatment is that before commencing you engage an Exercise Physiologists (E.P.) to determine your personal safe prescription and provide any other recommendations around your exercise involvement.
Once you have undertaken this E.P. session, the Fitness Professional will have a chat with you before the program starts discuss and clarify things.
Your support team can also join in the program, with just a medical screening and or a medical clearance from the GP required.
You and each participant within the group will be engaging at your own personal level of exercise and the Fitness Professional will guide, support, encourage and motivate.
You will be encouraged to record your physical results and other helpful information around emotions, energy levels, dates of last and side effects – some of which may be very useful to share with your other health and medical team.
This program is a valuable addition for you and anyone wishing to build the confidence, skills and knowledge to exercise.
