“Elements4Life is your sanctuary. The coaches are your guides”

Exercising with others provides an opportunity for increased social contact. Increased fitness may lift your mood and improve sleep patterns. Exercise may also change levels of chemicals in your brain, such as serotonin, endorphins and stress hormones.

Aim for at least 60 minutes a day.  This simply means active movement with intent.   Incorporating a resistance program into your schedule is critical.

Increases in daily activity can come from small changes made throughout your day, such as walking or cycling instead of using the car, getting off a tram, train or bus a stop earlier and walking the rest of the way, or walking the children to school.

See your doctor first if you have any concerns with starting a program.  We can refer you to our preferred doctors and physiotherapists.

Pre-exercise screening is used to identify people with medical conditions that may put them at a higher risk of experiencing a health problem during physical activity.  Elements4Life ensures a full screening session is done for all members before they commence.  It is a filter or ‘safety net’ to help decide if the potential benefits of exercise outweigh the risks for you. Usually, the benefits will far outweigh the risks.  Start today!
