Physio-Supervised Exercise Sessions

A 60-minute, Physio-supervised session involving a combination of pilates-inspired exercise exercises using Pilates equipment (reformers), as well as traditional gym equipment. Each session is tailored specifically to your individual needs and goals, and is different each time, with no pre-set programs. We’ll also chat about how you’re feeling on the day, perform any relevant assessments we need, and provide you with a tailored, appropriate session.

Physio-supervised exercise sessions offer a safe and effective way to improve your posture, core strength and stability, muscle strength and endurance, balance, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness.

What Do Physio-Supervised Exercise Sessions Involve?

Each session you’ll be doing a combination of pilates-inspired exercises using Pilates equipment, e.g. reformers and trapeze tables, as well as traditional gym equipment, e.g. cable machines, dumbbells, kettlebells, and bands.

In order to begin attending, you’ll need to have an initial one-on-one appointment with one of our physiotherapists to ensure we understand:

  • Your injury history
  • Your goals
  • To take some baseline measures so we can track your progress
  • Allow you to become familiar with the equipment and exercises you’ll be doing.

All exercise sessions are 60 minutes in duration and run by Physiotherapists

This means you get one-to-one attention over the hour to ensure you’re performing the exercises as you should to keep you safe and get maximum benefit.

Think of it as a 1:1 hour-long treatment session utilising exercise. Feeling particularly sore one day? No worries – we’ll have a chat about you’re how you’re feeling, do a quick assessment and modify and construct a session around your symptoms on the day to keep you active and get you moving better. New niggle thats popped up? No worries – let’s talk about that and work on that today.

We have a variety of equipment to keep you interested and progressing as your body adapts and improves – no pre-set programs! There’s no need to worry about setting up equipment or if you’re doing the exercise correctly, we instruct you and make sure you have the correct form.

We’ll also be sure to tailor the difficulty of your session to your physical capability and goals to ensure you’re getting the most out of your session.

We use only the best, state of the art equipment to ensure you have the best exercise experience with us.

Why should you consider Physio-supervised exercise? 

In most cases, hands-on treatment only relieves pain for the very short term. The second part of achieving and maintaining a confident, healthy and pain-free body is nurturing it through supervised exercise.

At Thrive Physio Plus we find when people undertake sustained periods of supervised physio-led exercise they report less pain, improved function, and are capable of doing more with their bodies without feelings of tightness pain, or restriction.

The research also shows that exercise in conjunction with education is THE MOST effective form of treatment for any musculoskeletal pain of the body.

Are the sessions suitable for me? 

Yes! We have people of all ages who attend including adolescents, the elderly, and everyone in between with an approximate 50:50 split of males and females. Appropriate for all conditions, ages, genders, goals, injuries, fitness levels and pre and post-natal, now’s the time to build a body you can count on.

Your body will thank you for it. We’ve had people who’ve tried other forms of exercise but just haven’t enjoyed it or found it a comfortable and safe environment.

Tried a gym but just not for you? We hear that a lot and we think we’re the perfect alternative.

When do the sessions run? 

Click here to review our session timetable in depth. With morning, afternoon, and evening sessions on offer from Monday to Saturday there should be times suitable for the busiest of individuals.

But I haven’t exercised before and don’t really know what to do? 

That’s almost the best bit! You don’t need to have any exercise experience or any familiarity with exercise equipment.

We’ll show you everything including set-up, proper form,  and the best exercises on the journey to reaching your goals.

Why should I exercise with a Physiotherapist? 

Physiotherapy is a highly skilled profession:

  • We understand the human body.
  • We undertake a thorough assessment.
  • We have extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal conditions
  • We know what your body needs and what it doesn’t need.
  • We know what your condition or ability will and won’t allow you to do.
  • We know where to strengthen or improve mobility for you and how to do it.
  • We know how to do this safely.

Do I really need to exercise? 

People who exercise regularly experience less pain. Plain and simple! The World Health Organisation guidelines for physical activity state that muscle-strengthening activities should be done involving major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week.

Additionally, research now shows that people who undertake strength work twice per week get on average a 23% reduction in all causes of death and a 31% reduction in cancer mortality.

People who exercise also:

  • Have lower rates of depression
  • Are more likely to live longer with better quality of life into their older years
  • Are likely to have less risk of a hip or vertebral fracture
  • Exhibit a higher level of cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness
  • Are more likely to achieve weight maintenance, and have a healthier body mass and composition.
