Gym Classes.

About Our Gym Classes

During these small group classes, you undertake your own personalized exercise programme which our Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologist have developed.

Move for Better Health™ has an on-site gym that includes cardio resistance machines, equipment and free-weights to help you get the most from your sessions.

All classes are supervised by Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologist who have extra training in exercise. They can help provide technically correct and clinically based exercise advice.

Our Gym classes can cater for those brand new to structured exercise, or those with experience in gym work who are wanting a challenge.

Some of the individuals or conditions we cater for within our Gym classes or 1:1 exercise sessions, in addition to the general musculoskeletal conditions or injuries mentioned above, include:

  • Exercise for Adolescents: We can develop a tailored exercise programme that can be useful for those who simply need some guidance on where to start an exercise routine, or those involved in high level or high intensity sport
  • Exercise for Balance & Falls Prevention: This type of exercise programme aims to encourages lower limb and core strength, as well as proprioceptive balance based exercises
  • Exercise for Cancer: Tailored exercise programmes for cancer largely involve aerobic and resistance exercises (on an exercise bike or with dumbbell weights, for example) at a low to medium intensity
  • Exercise for Osteoporosis: An exercise programme suitable for Osteoporosis may include resistance training, Pilates exercises and balance exercises
  • Exercise Type 2 Diabetes: This condition can be managed through a specific exercise programme, after objective and subjective assessments have been completed

How to Start an Exercise Programme

To ensure our allied health professionals can provide an exercise programme which is both appropriate for your needs, challenging, and helps you work towards your exercise goals, we generally require you to attend:

  • 1:1 Gym Assessment: where your instructor will speak to you about your medical history, past issues and your fitness goals. They will also undertake a number of tests and assessments to get an overall picture of your current levels of fitness. Following this assessment, your instructor will develop your personalized programme ready for your 1:1 exercise sessions.
  • 1-2 Gym 1:1s: These 1:1 sessions are held in our Gym Studio, where you will be taken through your exercise programme. This is an important part of the process, as it educates you on the proper technique required for each exercise, and what weights or settings you should start with

Depending on your individual circumstances and goals for an exercise programme, you don’t neccessarily have to continue into Gym Classes. You may choose to instead continue your exercise programme at home or a gym.

We have a wide range of times and days available for Gym classes which you can read here. To ensure maximum 1:1 attention and support, our classes are limited to 5 per session. We offer casual bookings (booking one class at a time) as well as recurring bookings (the same class each week).
