Keep Fit

Keeping active and doing a little bit of exercise will help to keep your blood sugars under control. You will be surprised at what you can do! Fishing counts, so does gardening and swimming. Try to aim for 30 minutes of moderate activity most days of the week. We have a wide range of programs such as Walking Groups and BEAT IT that will help you keep fit and manage your diabetes.

Walking Groups

Walking Groups are a great way to get active and have a yarn at the same time. To see if there is a walking group in your community go to your community page. If there is no walking group but you would like to start one talk to a Health Worker about how to go about it.


The BEAT IT program is for anyone who needs some help to get started in a fun supportive environment. Over a number of weeks you will get together with other people also interested in getting healthy and join in classes that are fun, safe and supportive. Keep a lookout for upcoming classes in your community!
