Research has shown that exercising is highly beneficial for people living with a chronic lung disease. In fact, it is widely recognised that one of the best things you can do for yourself is regularly exercise to help maintain your fitness, improve your wellbeing and reduce symptoms such as breathlessness.
Lungs in Action
Lungs in Action is a safe and enjoyable community-based exercise program designed to help people living with a chronic lung disease maintain the benefits achieved through pulmonary rehabilitation. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a six – eight week evidence-based exercise and education program that teaches people with a lung disease the skills they need to manage their breathlessness, live well and stay out of hospital.
