GROUP EXERCISE & GYM

Lake Health Group have ceased group exercise classes as of Thursday 6th August in line with government legislative requirements relating to Stage 3 COVID19  restrictions in regional Victoria.

Closure of the gym and Pilates area as well as cessation of groups is for a minimum of 6 weeks at this stage and relates to small exercise groups as well as the GLAD arthritis program.

For people in group classes please arrange for a one on one appointment with Josh or Jamie for them to construct a home program. For those currently doing GLAD with Lachie or Jasper this can continue but only in a 1 on 1 consultation basis.

We apologise for any inconvenience but your safety and that of all our clients and staff at Lake Health Group is our highest priority. We will continue to update you on the status of the gym and groups via social media, our website and our newsletter.

Updated 2nd  July 2020

You might be aware that as of the 1st April 2019, government legislation has ruled that certain natural therapies will no longer be recognized as claimable under private health insurance. Pilates is included in this legislation. This includes classes where “Pilates” is the only exercise regime offered, and where classes are marketed and conducted with “Pilates” exercises.

 

So, what does this mean for you as a client of Lake Health Group and as a Pilates user?

  • The good news is that if exercise classes draw from some of the Pilates principles and include other specific exercises and the class are facilitated by a physiotherapist, then these classes are still deemed to be claimable under private health insurance and will now be called ‘Exercise Classes’ or ‘Mat Exercise Classes’
  • It is critical that each person undertaking these classes still undertakes an individual assessment with specific goals that are targeted towards a person’s specific needs. All programs will be reviewed and updated regularly based upon the goals and individual program.
