Kick Start Your Health!
6 Week Fitness and Weight loss Program
Why should you exercise with a Physiotherapist?
It is helpful to start a new exercise program with a Physiotherapist if you have an injury or musculoskeletal condition. ie. arthritic knee, neck pain, shoulder bursitis.
We know that musculoskeletal injuries can present a barrier to exercising. We understand it can be very discouraging when starting a new exercise program and injuries flare up, stopping you from progressing.
Physiotherapists are qualified to assess and diagnose your injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. With this important information we can better plan your fitness program including rehabilitation specific to your problem areas.

How do we “Kick Start”?
We start by getting to know you and finding out about your health and fitness goals.
You will complete a pre- exercise questionnaire. Depending on your responses your may be advised to see a Doctor prior to beginning your exercise program.
We will then book you in for a Physiotherapy Fitness Assessment to discuss your goals and your pre- exercise questionnaire. We will assess any injuries as required (this may require an additional appointment).
Base line fitness measurements will be taken which we will monitor during the program to help you improve. You will be receive a home exercise program and weekly eating diary.
We will then book you into our Kick start exercise classes or for individual sessions for 6 weeks.
It is encouraged to attend a weekly 15 min appointment to reassess your fitness measurements, check your food diary and progress your home exercise program.
You will also attend our twice weekly circuit exercise classes (held outdoors during daylight saving) which provide a challenging, but fun, mix of cardiovascular exercise and strength training.
If preferred you may attend individual exercise sessions with your Physiotherapist at a convenient time.
