Karinya Clinic Gymnasium
Karinya Clinic at Albury Wodonga Private Hospital is extremely pleased to announce that the construction and fit out of the gymnasium has been completed.
Construction work on the purpose built facility began in December 2014 and was completed in February 2015. The gymnasium is equipped with a Life Fitness recumbent exercise bike, a Life Fitness treadmill, a Concept 2 rowing machine and a Life Fitness multi station.
The equipment chosen enables patients of Karinya Clinic to engage in an exercise program which improve cardio-vascular fitness and muscular strength and endurance. Patients who want to use the gym are assessed by a physiotherapist and a suitable exercise program is created for them.
The physical benefits of exercise are well researched and there have been studies completed which have demonstrated that regular exercisers have better mental health and emotional wellbeing and lower rates of mental illness.
