12-Week Comprehensive Lifestyle Change Programme
The 12-Week Comprehensive Lifestyle Change Programme is a combination of individualised exercise (with the option for it to be supervised in our exercise clinic) with specific nutrition advice and a focus on stress management.
This programme is tailored to you and your lifestyle goals and can therefore include any of our other services or input from any of our other practitioners. We design this programme with you, for you.
This programme is for those who:
- Would like to prevent any health concerns such as genetic heart issues from arising,
- Would like support during a transition in their life such as menopause, grief or change of work circumstance (ie retirement),
- Would like to improve their overall health and wellbeing but need to be accountable to something or someone else.
The cost of our 12-week Lifestyle Change Programme varies based on what can be included for you. Call us or contact us HERE for a chat.
The first step in undertaking a 12-week Comprehensive Lifestyle Change Programme is to complete a Health Assessment.
12-Week Monitored and Supervised Programme for all Health Conditions
Getting back into exercise (or just beginning an exercise programme) can be daunting and potentially dangerous if not done correctly following a health diagnosis, medical treatment or injury.
Our Clinical Exercise Physiologists conduct monitored and supervised exercise sessions where individuals are prescribed their own exercise programme (based on their health assessment and the current evidence-based-guidelines) up to 5 days per week in either in a drop in clinic or through personal one-on-one training sessions.
Our Clinical Exercise Physiologists ensure that exercise is both safe and effective by having a thorough understanding and knowledge of your diagnosis, prognosis, medication, and goals.
During your health assessment, a plan will be developed with you, and can be completed with additional support from our other services or input from other practitioners.
Cost varies depending on the level of supervision and support required. Call us or contact us HERE to discuss your programme.
All Monitored and Supervised Exercise Programmes begin with a Health Assessment.

Te Tohu Haumanu
We’re not big on labelling people, especially kids! The words overweight and obese are not great for anyone, but for kids those labels can stick with them for their entire life and influence the way they think about themselves and their families.
Te Tohu Haumanu means “a guide to restoring health” and that is exactly what our programme for kids provides. We enrol kids between the ages of 4 and 18 years (and their parents and caregivers too). Kids come to exercise 3 days each week, we provide a healthy meal for them and spend time talking about what good health actually means and how to achieve it. We run a parents and caregivers education programme at the same time.
The programme is 12-weeks long and is funded for most kids. Drop us a line HERE if you are interested in learning more about our ‘tohu’ programme.
