WHAT TO EXPECT
Your first appointment will involve a thorough case history and assessment of your current physical capabilities. Your health and medical goals will be discussed and from your first session, goals will be set and a program will be developed. Please allow 1 hour for your first appointment.
Following appointments focus on helping you reach the strength and fitness goals developed in the initial consultation. Close supervision of the exercises ensure correct technique, and allows for modifications and exercise progression to be made as necessary. Standard consultations are typically 30 min or 1 hour.
Small group sessions are run as blocks through out the year. Following an initial assessment, participants will be recommended for a group dependant on their ability and goals. Group numbers are kept to a minimum to allow close supervision of the exercises and each participant performs their own program targeting their specific needs.
