Chronic Disease Management
Our exercise Physiologists are here to help you manage and improve your chronic health conditions through the implementation of a safe and effective exercise program.
With a referral from your GP, you are eligible for 5 treatments per year under the CDM Medicare program.
Medicare benefits are available for certain services provided by eligible allied health professionals to people with chronic conditions and complex care needs who are being managed by a GP or medical practitioner using certain Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Medicare items.
Allied health services must be recommended in your plan as part of the management of your chronic condition.
Chronic medical conditions and complex care needs
A chronic medical condition is one that has been or is likely to be present for at least six months, e.g. asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, musculoskeletal conditions, and stroke. A patient is considered to have complex care needs if they require ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team consisting of their GP or medical practitioner and at least two other health or care providers.
5 simple keys to your success
Avoid the crowds
Gyms in Newcastle can become very crowded, especially in peak times. In our private personal training studio, there are never more than a handful of fitness trainers running 1-on-1 sessions at a time. Even the group fitness sessions are limited to small numbers and there is usually no contracts.
Good Personal Trainers work closely with their clients to achieve outstanding results. Working within a private studio means that there are no distractions and full focus can be given to you. Wellfit’s fitness professionals will never stop to talk to their friends or watch tv during your workout. Full attention is given to the client at all times.
Trainers who care
WellFit’s Personal Trainers know what they’re doing. We only hire fully qualified & experienced trainers who have helped people achieve outstanding rapid weight loss & fitness results in the past. Our focus is you, not pumping through sessions for a higher commision like some commercial gyms.
Monitor your results!
Because private fitness studios have less clients, they are able to put more time in, & pay more attention to, their clients. Private fitness trainers are also able to keep a close eye on your progress so that you never lose sight of your weight loss & fitness goals.
Confidence & Self-Esteem are often overlooked by fitness ‘professionals’ when dealing with clients. However, these two factors are actually the key to achieving long-term success for your body. In a private personal training environment, you don’t have to be self-conscious about who is watching you workout or what you look like on the treadmill.
