MOVE BETTER AND FEEL BETTER – Get one of our EPs to design you a safe, effective exercise management plan from some of our many exercise options
GYM – We have a strength and conditioning rehab gym at our facility in Nudgee Road, Ascot & Quay Street Bulimba, where our AEP’s can work with you to improve your function and strength. To name a few, we have machines such as the Cable Machine, Smith machine, treadmill, stationary bikes (both upright and recumbent) and squat rack. Our approach is utilising functional movements to improve ease for performing everyday tasks. We do this incrementally by using the principle of progressive overload within an evidence-based practice model.
KLT – Kinetic Link training is an individualised strengthening program whereby every exercise is completed in sets of 90 seconds on with a 60-second break in between each set. This circuit class is all in standing and squatting positions for functional fitness. KLT involves upper and lower body coordination in complex and multiplanar movements. Key principles include time under tension, stability, technique, progressive overload, and balance.
CLINICAL PILATES – Our exercise physiologists are fully trained in equipment and Matwork Pilates in addition to resistance training. This type of individualised exercise shows improvements in a wide variety of clients, from strength for footballers to flexibility in gymnasts/dancers and anyone else who would like to isolate even those smaller, deeper muscles that can be hard to challenge in other forms of exercise. In the studio, you may see people from 12 to 90+ years of age, all doing completely tailored programs fit for them!
