Physio Exercise Classes

These classes are led by a physiotherapist and may be conducted in our Claremont gym – 26 Brown Street.
Our physio-led exercise classes help you improve your strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. The exercises in a physio exercise class typically focus on improving the function of specific muscle groups, such as the core muscles or the muscles in the legs and arms. Some common exercises that may be included in the classes include:

  • Stretching exercises: help improve flexibility and range of motion in the joints.
  • Strengthening exercises: target specific muscle groups to help build strength and improve physical function.
  • Balance exercises: Thelp improve balance and coordination, which can reduce the risk of falls and other injuries.
  • Cardiovascular exercises: such as rowing, or cycling, help improve cardiovascular health and overall fitness.
  • Functional exercises: designed to mimic everyday activities, such as lifting objects, reaching, and bending, to help improve overall physical function.

In addition to the physical benefits, our classes can also provide social support and motivation for participants. Being part of a group can help people feel more motivated to continue with their exercise program and can provide a sense of community and camaraderie.

Pelvic Floor & Core Class

Suitable for women of all ages wanting to increase their pelvic floor and core body strength.

During the 1 hour class they will do an intensive pelvic floor workout focusing on maintaining correct technique. The exercises are performed in a variety of functional positions and to avoid muscle fatigue the pelvic floor exercises are interspersed with core exercises. Short education sessions are sometimes added.

The core exercises are designed to correct posture and breathing that affects the pelvic floor function. We focus on strengthening the glutes, back muscles, pelvic girdle, shoulder girdle and improving breathing.
This is a popular class suitable for any women interested in improving their pelvic floor and related postural muscles. 
An initial assessment is required with a Pelvic Health physiotherapist before attending.
