Veterans Health

Exercise services for defence veterans aim to support and enhance their physical fitness, overall well-being, and quality of life. These services are specifically designed to address the unique needs and challenges faced by veterans who have served in the armed forces. Health First’s exercise services available for defence veterans include:
  • These programs focus on providing tailored exercise routines that accommodate physical limitations or disabilities veterans may have acquired during their service. They emphasise functional movements, strength training, cardiovascular fitness, and flexibility exercises to promote mobility and independence.

  • Exercise has been proven to have positive effects on mental health. Exercise services for veterans often incorporate mental health support, such as being part of a like minded community and group socialisation activities, to address conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. These programs use exercise as a tool for stress reduction, improved mood, and enhanced overall well-being.

  • Specialised fitness classes are offered exclusively for defence veterans, creating a supportive environment where they can exercise alongside peers who share similar experiences. These classes may include activities like pilates, strength training, aquatic exercise, or outdoor adventure programs, providing opportunities for social interaction and camaraderie.

  • For veterans dealing with injuries or recovering from surgeries, exercise services can include rehabilitation programs that focus on restoring mobility, rebuilding strength, and facilitating a smooth transition back into an active lifestyle. These programs may involve physical therapy, guided exercise routines, and specialised equipment to aid in the recovery process.

The aim of these exercise services is to empower defence veterans by providing them with the tools, resources, and support necessary to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, improve their physical and mental well-being, and foster a sense of belonging and connection within the veteran community. long-term.
