Regular exercise is excellent for not only general health, but can assist with airway clearance, increasing bone density and building muscle tone in people living with CF. CFT understands that the annual cost of a gym membership can put this option out of reach for many people with CF due to the many costs they have associated with the condition.
Members can apply for a subsidy of $250 per year towards their personal gym membership. Before you make an application, please check your eligibility by reading the policy here. To make an application please click here.
We recognise that not everyone has access to a gym near to their home, or may not feel comfortable in a gym environment. But we also know that buying equipment to maintain your fitness can be expensive. Under this policy we provide a contribution towards the cost of something of your choice - whether it be traditional gym equipment to use at home such as a treadmill or exercise bike, an outdoor bike or even a trampoline. CFT will provide up to 50% of a piece of equipment of your choice - up to $500 per eligible member. For a copy of the policy please click here. For the application form please click here.
