  • Circuit-based gym exercises, with both machines and free weights, that are scaled up or down depending on each participants' individual requirements, fitness, strength and functional capacity.

  • Small group class, with a maximum of 6 participants to ensure that each person gets sufficient attention and instruction on correct technique

  • Classes are supervised by post-graduate and master's qualified physios with many years of strength and conditioning experiencing

  • We focus on regaining strength, balance, agility, confidence and functional capacity for things like, getting up from a low chair, squatting, stepping up, carrying things, walking on uneven surfaces, playing with grandkids, return to golf and tennis etc
