        Increase your fitness and feeling of well being in a very sociable atmosphere with Aerobic type movements. We use a shallow pool, heated to 32 degrees during winter (lower during hot weather). So you’ll be nice, safe and cosy. And our tutor is patient and friendly, with plenty of experience.

        Health Fund Rebate
        Did you know there is a possibility that you can get a rebate from your private health fund if you do one of our fitness or health related courses?

        Some health funds will give you a rebate for exercise programs or health management programs that your doctor has prescribed to address or improve a specific medical condition. The health fund may ask you if the provider of the exercise program is qualified, the answer is that all of our tutors have either qualifications and or experience in the field in which they teach. Your medical practitioner may also be required to fill out a form provided by your health fund. Also it will depend on your level of coverage with your health fund.

        Additionally the rules vary between health funds, therefore you would need to check with your health fund as to your eligibility, and also ask them what documentation they require.
