This training workshop is an approved Continuing Education course with Fitness Australia (15 CECs).
Note: Lift for Life
® is licenced to Fitness Australia and developed by Baker Diabetes & Heart Institute. Completion of the Lift for Life® workshop does not oblige participants to become registered to deliver the Lift for Life® program.

I find that G.P’s are quite impressed with the participant's progress report I send them and this helps them believe in the program and refer more clients to our facilities.
