Personal Training with an Injury

 

If you are keen to train but are carrying a niggling back or shoulder injury and don't want to risk damage - we can help. Our Exercise Physiologists specialise in exercise and chronic injuries.  They will train you taking into consideration your injuries, and help you improve or maintain you fitness in a safe and effective manner.  We have a specific range of specialised fitness equipment for upper and lower limb injuries.

 

We offer 30 or 60 minute personal training sessions in the following forms:

 

One-on-one

Just you and your trainer, this form of personal training is the most popular.  You will have the total attention of your personal trainer for the duration of the session, with each session designed specifically for you.

 

Training with a partner

You can train with a partner and reap the benefits of personal training at a reduced cost.  Programs are tailored to each individual with the trainer sharing their time.  No slackening off...our eyes are on you at all times!

 

Group training

If you have a small group of friends or work mates and would like to train together, we offer PT to suit your individual needs in a group environment.  If you are an individual looking to join a group with participants of the same age and fitness level we can match you up with existing groups.

 

Semi Personal Training

Train with another person at a reduced rate!  The matching is done by us, and your program is personalised to meet you needs.

 

Getting Started

Phone us to make an appointment for an initial fitness assessment. The assessment takes approximately 55 minutes.

* We offer a free consultation for people who are unsure about what direction they should take with their personal training.

 

Initial Fitness Assessment

An initial fitness assessment is conducted prior to commencement of training sessions, and is beneficial to record a baseline measurement of your fitness.  This will help to determine your current fitness level, and also determine what you'd like to get out of your training. Fitness goals are discussed at this time.

The fitness assessment consists of a range of fitness tests, which vary depending on your injury, but may include tests such as completing a health profile, blood pressure, weight, body fat %, girths, flexibility test, core stability test, abdominal strength test, muscular endurance test, and a sub-maximal aerobic test (to determine your cardiovascular fitness level!).

We can later re-assess your fitness level to compare the results and gauge your progress. Goals can be reviewed at this time.
