Strength for LifeTM requires an initial assessment and referral from a GP. This allows our program to cater to a participants medical needs, guide the provider and access health plan and rebates.

Depending on the patients’ health conditions and ability, a GP can refer patients to an appropriate tier provider:

  • Tier One providers are exercise physiologists or physiotherapists who have the skills and experience to deal with those participants who have chronic conditions or are in need of rehabilitation services.
    Tier 1 providers may be referred to a health care plan, and participants may be able to claim from their private health cover.
  • Tier Two providers are professional fitness instructors who are equipped to deal with those participants with minor health conditions.
