What are the benefits for you?
Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health and well-being throughout your life.. Whether you are a seasoned athlete or new to formal exercise, we can help you get moving or shake up your existing routine in a safe space with an individualised exercise plan to achieve your goals.
Movement is Medicine
Keeping active is also essential whilst navigating an injury. The deconditioning associated with stopping exercise completely is the potentially the largest risk factor for you when returning to exercise after your injury. It’s almost too easy to let other body areas get neglected when in pain, so let us help you navigate the issue whilst keeping you moving in a safe and beneficial way.
The Australian Department of Health specifies that you should have at least 2.5 – 5 hours of moderate physical activity per week (or up to 2.5 of vigorous activity) PLUS strengthening activity 2 days per week! 150 minutes is recommended and many Australians do not meet this. The best way to get this in is to have structured time in the week to perform your exercise.
How is this different to a normal group exercise class?
In our supervised exercise classes you are guided by and have support from a physiotherapist who holds a 4 year bachelor degree, or a 5 year masters degree, compared with a 12 week Certificate 3 in fitness for most gym classes.
Class size is a large differentiating factor, with our Physio Supervised Exercise Classes capped at 4 people, compared to many exercise classes with 30-40 people; which means a more personalised approach for you throughout the session to achieve your goals.
In addition, unlike standard gym classes where everyone does the same thing, you will complete your own personalised tailored program. This means we can focus on your goals and areas you wish to improve, with the resources available to spend plenty of time one on one with you each session.
To begin participating in these classes we require you to undertake an initial assessment. This allows us to get to know you; your previous experience(s), injury/medical history, goals and exercise preferences. We can also take this opportunity to begin teaching you any new exercises we believe will help you achieve your goal.
Reassessment is required after 8 classes; to determine whether your goal has been met, for the program to be adjusted and to ensure you’re getting the most out of your session time. This helps us all to keep accountable to ensuring that you hit the goals you set out to achieve.
How do I get involved?
The first step on your journey is to book in an initial exercise class assessment with one of our passionate Physiotherapists, who will tailor your personalised program to your goals.
It’s that easy!
