How does it work?

An initial consultation with your exercise physiologist will cater to your specific goals and needs, assessing your health, fitness, posture, biomechanics, lifestyle habits, and medical history. This information will then be used to develop a personalised plan for your specific goals and conditions. Depending on your needs this plan may include seeing your exercise  physiologist weekly to supervise exercise sessions or periodic support to keep you on track and address any concerns.
