Outdoor Exercise and Rehabilitation
Meet Facility Co-ordinator Tui Priest
We are very lucky to have Tui as coordinator for the rehabilitation facility at Pohlen Hospital. Tui has 30 years’ experience in the sports and fitness industry. She is also a Sport Waikato co-ordinator.
Tui is available on a Wednesday, between 10.30am and noon, to get people started, ensure they are using the equipment safely, monitor their progress, provide encouragement and generally provide support.
Free Facility for Locals
This facility is going from strength to strength since opening in 2010
The facility and associated programme is free to use by any adult in our community. This is definitely the key to its success as cost and accessibility are the two main barriers for people wanting to exercise.
The Outdoor Exercise and Rehabilitation Facility is well utilised by a wide range of people.
Their needs include:
- Strength and balance
- Weight loss
- Meeting new people
