International Men’s Health Week: 20% off Men’s Health Checks

Nathan men's health check

International Men’s Health Week celebrates it’s 30th anniversary this year and takes place from Monday, June 10, to Sunday, June 16, 2024. This year, the focus is on Men’s Health Checks. These can include: Men’s Mental Health, Men’s Heart Health, Exercise and Men’s Health, and Mateship and Men’s Health.

There are a range of chronic and acute health conditions and symptoms that men experience differently to women such as prostate and testicular cancer; and men are at an increased risk of a heart attack or diabetes, severe depression and anxiety. Men’s Health Checks are important to be proactive about as we know that men can bottle things up until there is a problem, particularly when it comes to their physical, emotional and mental health.

Only 1 in 5 men are both sufficiently active (aerobic training) and meeting the muscle strengthening guidelines. We all know that to be happy, healthy and have a good innings (live longer) exercise can play an important role for Australian men. Here is a great, varying range of health benefits for men who exercise:

» Weight loss

» Improved testosterone levels as you age

» Build social and teamwork skills

» Reduced risk of cancers such as colon or prostate cancer

» Decreased risk of diabetes

» Lower cholesterol

» Reduced depression and anxiety

» Lower risk of high blood pressure


Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are university qualified professionals equipped with the knowledge to design safe and effective exercise programs for men living with, or at risk of developing chronic health conditions; and even those men who are looking to exercise after a long break.

Thorough evidence-based pre-screening and relevant fitness testing is conducted onsite at our state-of-the-art functional rehabilitation facility to gain an understanding of all the health conditions you are living with, how they impact your life and your current level of fitness. It may be recommended to start with supervised sessions at our facility under the experienced eye of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists, Nathan Walker or Scott Howard, or your program can be designed to be performed from home. We utilise a free exercise software program called Physitrack, which can be downloaded to your smart phone or tablet, which gives you the ability to message your therapist directly with feedback about your exercises.

For the month of June and July we are offering a very special deal – if you want to exercise or know a male in your life who does but aren’t sure how to get started, please book a Men’s Health & Exercise check (initial consultation) with one of our AEP’s today. Initial consultations in June and July are 20% off! They can help show you how to exercise at a safe and appropriate intensity to start enjoying the physical, mental and emotional benefits.
