Community Programs

Aquamoves offers a selection of specialised programs to assist in improving the health and wellbeing of specific community groups. 

Huff & Puff

Huff & Puff is a maintenance exercise program for people who have completed pulmonary rehabilitation.

The program involves both aerobic and strength training exercises, with participants undertaking individualised programs. 

All sessions are supervised by a qualified fitness instructor and participants are encouraged to self-monitor as taught in pulmonary rehabilitation.


The Huff & Puff exercise program can assist participants with breathing exercises for reducing shortness of breath. Research has shown that patients who have participated in pulmonary rehabilitation programs have fewer exacerbations (a sudden worsening of your condition), fewer admissions to hospital and an improved quality of life. The Huff & Puff exercise program is a great social and support network for those who are diagnosed and live with a Pulmonary Disease.
