Outdoor Exercise and Rehabilitation

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.

This service is also free. After you have seen Tui for the first time, feel free to use this facility any time you like. If this time does not suit, call her on 027 270 8867 to make an appointment.

Read about Tui and her patient Gerda Krukerink in this article featured in the Matamata Chronicle.

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
  • Fitness
  • Coordination
  • Rehabilitation
  • Weight loss
  • Meeting new people
