Better Living with Exercise – Your Personal Guide
Working with a team of experienced health professionals and patients, Lung Foundation Australia has developed the first stand-alone resource dedicated to exercise. Better Living with Exercise – Your Personal Guide has been developed to facilitate patients and their exercise physiologist or physiotherapist to develop the most suitable exercise program based on their lung condition, goals and interests. This resource is an important tool to help anyone living with a chronic lung condition achieve their prescribed exercise program to keep well and better manage their condition. The guide includes pictures and descriptions of exercises, outlines the important components of exercise and its safety, details how to develop goals, and includes log sheets to track and monitor progress.
Better Living with Exercise – Your Personal Guide is now available to download free from our website at https://lungfoundation.com.au/better-living-with-exercise-your-personal-guide/ or can be purchased through our online shop at https://shop.lungfoundation.com.au/ for $8 plus postage and handling.
