SPECIAL ALUMNI OFFER
Join the forefront of health and fitness innovation for over 50s
UQ Alumni are invited to join our quest to lead the way in creating a healthier world by bringing together clinical excellence, research, leading technology, and a commitment to train the next generation of health professionals. UQ Healthy Living is transforming health and fitness for over 50s and the recently expanded Toowong facility is offering Alumni exclusive access to a complimentary ‘New Starter Pack’ valued at up to $270*.
Underpinned by the latest research in health and longevity, UQ Healthy Living addresses the mental, social and physical needs of clients to provide client-centred care. Led by an interprofessional team of exceptional clinicians, the facility brings together exercise physiotherapy, dietetics, physiotherapy, audiology, and occupational therapy services.
The team design specialty and preventative programs to manage chronic disease, cognitive decline, and a range of age-related challenges. These services are enhanced by UQ’s commitment to train the next generation of practitioners to work in a collaborative, client-focused model. The outcome is an elevated experience for all involved with an energised, intergenerational dynamic.
A highlight of the world-class facility is the exclusive HUR user-friendly technology. Unlike typical commercial equipment, HUR uses low starting loads of 100gm, and smooth pneumatic air resistance matched to the body’s natural movements, reducing the risk of injury. Programmed wristbands alter each machine to prescribed resistance and posture requirements, and record progress.
The newly opened Members Studio, dedicated to independent exercise, offers additional equipment, such as the latest in fitness gamification for those determined to preserve optimum balance, reaction time and cognition.
The ‘New Starter Pack’ for Alumni offers:
- Health Assessment led by an accredited Exercise Physiologist valued at $90
- Personal Program Introduction valued at $60
- HUR wristband valued at $20
- First month membership in Members Studio valued at $100 (for those cleared by our clinicians to safely undertake independent exercise)
