Mates4Mates The Next Step Program

Are you a veteran who wants to confidently include more exercise in their lifestyle? 

Then The Next Step Program may be for you.

What is The Next Step Program?

The Next Step Program is designed by our Exercise Physiologists to help veterans increase their confidence in exercising and transition to self-managing their physical activity goals.

The program will take veterans through a group session once a week over six weeks, providing participants with an individualised exercise program and the opportunity to receive one-on-one support from the Exercise Physiologist.

Upcoming Program

This program will run across six weeks at the Townsville Family Recovery Centre, every Tuesday, starting 29 August to 3 October 2023, from 10:30am to 11:30am.

Initial consultations will occur prior to the program starting to establish goals, conduct initial testing, and develop an individualised program for each participant. A final consultation will then take place after the program is completed.

Please note:

  • A referral from DVA or Medicare will be required to participate in this program.
  • Participating in this program means that you are expected to attend all sessions.
