Mummycise - pregnancy exercise class
An exercise class specifically designed for pregnant women or the very early (less than 12 weeks) post natal. This class focuses on low back and pelvic strength as well as upper back and neck mobility and posture. During pregnancy your body changes so much week to week, so we work with you to help coordinate the different way your core muscles, your legs, glutes, and your back have to move to accomodate these rapid changes. Commit to be fit during pregnancy and reap the rewards!
Mums and Bubs - Early postnatal exercise class
Specifically designed to address the needs of the early post natal women, our Mums and Bubs classes focus on rebuilding control of your pelvic floor, abdominal wall and gluteal strength. Mums are very welcome to bring their babies (up to crawling) in a friendly, nurturing, safe and sociable environment. Exercises will be modified to suit the fitness levels of all participants. Available 4+ weeks post partum, after your post natal assessment and goal review.
MumFit - Post natal circuit based strength class
A progression from Mums and Bubs class. Mumfit is a circuit based exercise class using weights and cardio equipment to help get mums strong and ready to return to the gym. There is still that focus on pelvic floor and abdominal rehabilitation but incorporates more functional movements. It is a fun, yet challenging class.
RunFit - Exercise session for the recreational runner
Running is a fabulous form of exercise. It improves cardiovascular health, lower limb strength and mental health. Unfortunately as an activity that relies on repetitive impact it is often associated with injuries. Many of these injuries can be prevented with targeted exercise and knowledge about training principles. RunFit is an 8-week progressive course ran through the school term. It includes a progressive strength based program once a week with associated home exercises and educational material to improve the general form and ability and knowledge of the recreational runner and to help those who want to start or return to running.
Clinical Rehab - Pilates informed exercise
Clinical Rehab classes are small group exercise classes where every participant has an individualised program. These high focus classes involve the use of specialised pilates equipment including reformers, trapeze tables, and multi chair. Your physiotherapist may also add exercises with the BOSU, fitball, mats and band to your equipment program. Read more about Clinical Rehab here.
Teenfit - Pilates informed exercise for teenage girls
A class specifically for teenage girls. These Clinical Rehab classes primarily use the Pilates equipment to help address all those postural and muscular imbalances. Because it is specific to teenage girls it is a comfortable and fun environment for these young athletes to exercise. Each girl in the group is following her own program. The music is more to her taste, and there are only other girls in the class, along with the physio to ensure she is correctly implementing these new movement patterns and develop better posture, strength and control.
KidFit - Exercise class for kids
Specifically for boys and girls aged approximately 8-12, Kidfit is a circuit based progressive exercise class over 8 weeks, through the school term. It is specifically for kids who lack balance, control and posture awareness. It's for those kids who need a little help to get their bodies ready for sport or to prevent injuries. It is a fun, supportive and comfortable environment for kids to learn to move better.
Back to Basics - Floor based Pilates informed exercise class
Ideal for strengthening, toning, core control and increased flexibility. Back to Basics involves precise movements (the majority performed sitting or laying) in combination with specific breathing techniques to increase your body and mind connection. Utilising some Pilates exercises which are tailored to your individual needs and are a great way of returning to exercise following the birth of a baby. This class is also idea for men and women wanting to breathe better, move better, stand taller and live with less pain.
