Gym Tour at Newcastle Aquatic Physio
As we head towards the start of our Autumn Wellness Program, which kicks off March 17th, we thought it would be a great time to introduce new clients (and re-familiarise our past clients!) with our gym facility. Our Autumn Wellness group classes will be held Thursdays 11am in our gym area for 6 weeks.
Newcastle Aquatic Physiotherapy's gym adjoins, but is separate to, our clinic’s treatment room and contains the same Life Fitness equipment found in all major health club facilities. We are registered with Fitness Australia and recognised by many Health Funds as a provider of health and fitness programs.
How To Get Started:
Our Physiotherapists can prescribe cardio, strength and resistance programs for injury rehabilitation, core stability, post-operative protocols, balance and proprioception. This can be done following a consultation with our physiotherapist to set goals, identify any injuries or areas of focus, and develop a tailored program to suit your needs.
In our first week of our Autumn Wellness Program, participants will undergo a holistic initial assessment to measure multiple areas of health including strength, balance and cardiovascular health. This also provides an opportunity for participants to set goals and discuss any injuries or health needs with the physiotherapist. The following 6 week program will involve weekly group exercise classes held in our gym area, with further prescription or development of a home or gym program depending on your needs.
What Our Gym Includes:
Our gym equipment features multiple cardio based exercise machines, including 2 treadmills and 3 exercise bikes (1 featuring a hand ergometer).
Our gym also features multiple resistance machines which can be used to improve your upper and lower body strength. These include:
Lat Pull Down
Pec Dec/Reverse Fly
We also have a large area of free space featuring a variety of free weights (including dumbbells and kettlebells) and medicine balls for use individually or as part of our group class in the designated space.
