HEALTH AND FITNESS
Keeping active is great for health, fitness and mobility, but also for confidence and social skills.
We have Gym Programmes which run on:
- Tuesday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm
- Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm
These are held at Pettigrew Green Arena which is over the road from EIT Hawke’s Bay. Pete coordinates this programme.
To be part of the Gym Programme, clients must have a clearance from either a physiotherapist or their General Practitioner (GP). Clients’ programmes are assessed at least annually by a neuro-physiotherapist who may also assist in establishing an appropriate individual programme for clients.
Every Friday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm, there is a sports programme at the Hastings Sports Stadium in Railway Road. A variety of equipment is made available for clients to use. Family members, caregivers, and Brain Injury Association Hawke’s Bay (BIAHB) members are always welcome to join in.Sports played are:
- T Ball
- Table Tennis
Darryl and Pete facilitate the Sports Programme.
