Burn off blood sugars and feel energised.
We all understand the importance or mobility, exercise and physical activity. But how do we apply it for ourselves? What’s right for me? These are the sorts of questions we all ask when we’re getting started on our journey to health.
Along the way we’ll find barriers that present themselves too. Who’s got enough time to exercise? How can I prioritise spending money on the gym or trainers when the rates are due?
Take a deep breath.
We’ve got you.
These problems aren’t new to us. We’re EPs (exercise physiologists). We’ve helped thousands of people overcome struggles with diabetes. We know what you need to do, we know how to do it, and we’re damn good at getting through all the hurdles that pop up in our way.
We do this with our Sugar Burners program. Sugar Burners is our in-clinic diabetes exercise class and one-one-one training sessions.
Welcome to Sugar Burners where you’ll achieve:
- Improved fitness
- Reduced blood sugar levels
- Reduced blood pressure
- Weight loss
- Body fat loss
- Improved mood
- Improved understanding of diabetes physiology
- Feel fantastic as you get your diabetes under control or into remission
As EPs we have knowledge in your physiology, we understand more than just blood sugar levels. We’ve done the research and have the experience to prescribe movements, exercises and activities that are tailored to your needs.
We’re also exercise experts. We can train you with compassion as well as 🔥 fire you up with motivation if that’s what you need.
And we do all of this in our comfortable clinic based gym, The Strong Room.
Sessions are available one-on-one from early morning to late evening every day. We also run a small group Sugar Burners classes where you can work out alongside a few new friends pushing and supporting each other towards your goals.
By now you’re probably thinking, I’m in. This sounds amazing, but oh so expensive. Well, you’re half right. Sugar Burners classes are amazing and life changing, but not expensive at all.
As EPs we’re able to offer both private health rebates as well as medicare rebates. This means that our initial prices of one-on-one sessions ($65), and group sessions ($20) are often much less.
If you’re covered with private health insurance you can check with your insurer however most people have minimal out of pocket expenses.
And if you have type 2 diabetes every year you can get a referral into Sugar Burners which will cover your initial one-on-one session completely and 8 of your exercise classes will be less than $5. This is the only time you’ll need to get a referral from your doctor (GP) to see our EPs.
To think that you’ll be paid by medicare to burn sugar! Your doctor (GP) can advise on your eligibility but at this stage medicare will only pay you if you have type 2 diabetes.
To get started you’ll need your first one-on-one session. You can book in online with our EPs and take the first step. Simply select a new appointment time with one of EPs that suits you.
Once you’ve had your first session you and your EP will collaborate on whether personal or group training sessions are best for you.
We’re pumped to be part of your journey towards a healthy & happy you.
You’re going to love being a Sugar Burner with us.

Do I need a referral for Sugar Burners?
You don’t need a referral to start your journey to better diabetes management. If you have private health insurance with coverage for exercise physiology you’ll only pay the gap fees.
But, you can get a referral from your GP for Sugar Burners which medicare will rebate yor a single one on one session and 8 group sessions per year. To do this your GP can send a referral for Allied Health Group Services for Type 2 Diabetes (what a mouthful!) to us. Fax it to 9923 6215 or email email@example.com

I have more questions, can I talk to an Exercise Physiologist?
Absolutely, if you’d like to discuss Sugar Burners or any EP needs we’d be happy to. As we are usually busy seeing people in the clinic it’s best if we call you back. You can leave a message via phone on 9304 0500 or even better, email firstname.lastname@example.org
