Exciting news - BUPA has just become the first health insurance provider in Australia to offer cover for gym memberships, including personal training!
There are stringent controls around how it works, which is just as it should be - your health and wellbeing is too important to mess around with.
And because I am officially registered with Fitness Australia, that means I am automatically a BUPA Recognised Provider - so if you are a BUPA member, then yes, your health insurance may cover your personal training sessions with me!
Are you Eligible?
At the present time, you will only be eligible for health cover if your health care provider (eg GP, physiotherapist, chiropractor) has completed a 'Health Management Gym’ or ‘PT Medical Form’. on your behalf. This should specifically state that personal training services would be of benefit for your particular condition - for example, back pain or mental health issues.
I'm really excited that the health community is starting to officially recognise the benefits of physical activity - under the supervision of a qualified personal trainer - for chronic conditions, such as:
Although BUPA is currently the only health insurance provider that offers cover for gym memberships and personal training, hopefully in time other Private Health Funds will also offer this significant incentive.

Why Work with Me?
