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.
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.
Clincial Rehab classes are based on Pilates principals. They use our special Pilates equipment which is designed to assist with correct movement patterns and strength development. Those who benefit from these classes include sufferers of chronic neck and back conditions, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and post surgery. It also helps those mums and dads who just need to improve their posture, core and the way they move to stop the aches and pains from every day life. Each clinical rehab program is designed to suit the individual person. An initial program assessment & three private sessions are required before joining a clinical rehab small group for 6 or 12 weeks.
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.
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.
Strength and Conditioning
