Lungs In Action

What is Lungs in Action?

Lungs in Action is a Phase 3 Pulmonary Rehabilitation program run in conjunction with the Lung Foundation Australia. Research has shown that benefits gained by completing Phase 1-2 Pulmonary Rehabilitation will be lost if the exercise and lifestyle changes are not maintained.

Lungs in Action is a safe and enjoyable community-based, low to moderate intensity exercise program run by an accredited exercise physiologist. It is also suitable for people with heart failure who often experience similar symptoms such as breathlessness, to those with chronic lung conditions.

What do the classes involve?

The Lungs in Action classes involve once weekly group exercise sessions. The classes are run by our Accredited Exercise Physiologists. The classes consist of a combination of walking and strength based exercises. All exercises are modified for individual abilities and are also suitable for people who require supplemental oxygen and walking frames.
