At the Physiotherapy, Pilates & Health Centre we are experts at designing exercise programs with a full understanding of your particular injuries. Not only are we Physiotherapists, but most of us are also Personal Trainers and Clinical Pilates instructors. Therefore we can provide you with a highly specialised and unique service.

Our fitness training program includes:

  • An initial exercise assessment where we obtain a detailed history of your goals, injuries, medical conditions and exercise level.
  • Assessment of your injuries or movement patterns to establish whether your program needs to be modified or include specific elements of rehabilitation.
  • Closely supervised technique sessions in clinic with transition to the gym or your home either with a trainer or independently once you are ready.
  • The production of a well structured and goal-directed exercise program for you to keep. For example this may be in the form of a fitball and weights program for home.
