Achieve the most out of your body

Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists work with clients of all abilities. We provide education, support, advice and a tailored exercise-based program to achieve the most out of your body.

What to expect in your first appointment

Our Exercise Physiology appointments generally start by getting to know you. We’ll ask questions to understand your current health and physical capabilities. It’s also important for us to know your previous exercise history. 

Our goal is to get you back to the things you love, meaning we want to know your health and exercise goals. This helps us to create an achievable treatment plan that is in line with your objectives. Your Exercise Physiologist will discuss with you in detail your treatment plan. They’ll also explain how to execute your exercises and at what intensity and frequency they should be done.

Supervision in our gym by your Exercise Physiologist ensures you’re using correct techniques. It also allows for modifications and progression to your exercise plan. The number of times you should come in for an appointment depends on your condition and goals. Your Exercise Physiologist will recommend how often you should be coming in.
