Whether you’re looking to improve your fitness, rehabilitating from an injury / surgery or would like to set yourself some new exercise goals in 2020, our group exercise sessions are a safe and enjoyable way to return to an active lifestyle, no matter what age or stage you are at. All classes are lead by one of our Physiotherapists and tailored to suit the specific needs and physical requirements of all participants. Individual attention will ensure you are exercising correctly and safely whilst managing any injuries or problem areas. Speak to your treating Physiotherapist about which class would be most suitable for you, as you will need a specific program.
Strength and Conditioning
Ideal for patients returning to exercise following an injury or surgery, those looking for a targeted work out or working around a physical limitation. Your physiotherapist will develop an exercise program specifically for you focusing on core areas. Using our fully equipped gym, you will work through your program under the guidance and supervision of a physio to ensure you are working safely and with correct technique with appropriate progressions each session. To achieve the best results and continuous improvement a program review is due every three months, and we recommend attending twice per week.
With a focus on improving core control for back, neck and pelvic strength, Strong Core is an energetic, fun way to start your Saturday morning! Ideal for those wishing to start or return to exercise or those looking to stay accountable to exercising regularly with other people. An ideal progression from Mums and Bubs or an adjunct to a Strength and Conditioning session.
Tailored to those over 60, this class is a fun and social way to commit to exercise. With a focus on strength, movement, weight bearing, balance and co-ordination, you will make your way through a circuit using our gym equipment and floor based activities. All exercises are developed by our physiotherapists, modified to your specific needs and are closely supervised to ensure your safety.
Mummycise (pre natal)
Designed for pregnant women, from the earliest stages until delivery, this class focuses on low back and pelvic strength as well as upper back and neck 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 (post natal)
Specifically designed to address the needs of post-partum women, our Mums and Bubs classes focus on rebuilding control of your pelvic floor, abdominal wall and gluteal strength. Participants are welcome to bring their babies (up to crawling) to exercise together 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.
Back to Basics
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.
Clincial Rehabilitation group sessions can benefit acute and chronic neck and back conditions, poor posture, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, post surgery rehabilitation and aid in the prevention of recurrent injuries. Each clinical rehab program is designed to suit the individual person and uses a combination of pilates reformer, trapeze table, mat and ball exercises and resistance to train specific areas of the body.

We now run sessions specifically for teenaged girls, to help build their strength and coordination for their athletic pursuits!
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 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.
