The Return to Gym Program is specially designed to help you get back to living a healthy and active lifestyle. Our program is designed to assess, educate and guide you to achieve a safe, injury-free return to gym activity that allows you to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Our team uses the technology, experience, and strategies used from elite sport to gain baseline data about your strength, function, balance and mobility. Based on the data obtained, a specially designed program is implemented to improve deficits identified and return to safe gym activity whilst considering your individual training and injury history. The program focusses on addressing areas of weakness identified during initial testing and optimising movement patterns and function that enhances function, strength and fitness specific for your health goals.

Our Return to Gym Program includes a variety of assessments, treatments, and techniques, specific for developing athletes to enhance growth and maturaiton. This includes:​

1. In-Depth Musculoskeletal & Movement Assessment
A thorough assessment using our contemporary technology to obtain baseline range of motion, strength, balance, function and stability data provides us the foundation to deliver individualised care.

2. Recondition Tissue - Treatment & Therapy
A variety of techniques may be used to reduce initial pain and target specific goals such as improving joint mechanics and addressing functional restrictions. Learn more about ​our Treatment & Therapy.

3. Individual Strength & Function  Program
A tailored training program is then implemented to target areas of weakness and enhance strength and function. The program is individualised with specific feedback, alongside regular communication with coaches/personal trainers, to ensure a collaborative approach to your return to gym journey.

4. Technology Interventions — Maximising Results
We utilise technology, used within elite sport, to maximise your strength and function redevelopment. This includes the use of our monitoring technology to re-assess and adjust your program, along with modalities such as The Compex to provide electrical muscle stimulation to maximise strength and activation patterns.

5. Support & Guidance
Throughout the process, continuous support and guidance is provided to ensure you achieve your health and function goals. We educate you throughout your Return to Gym Program journey on injury prevention strategies, exercise technique, and lifestyle factors to optimise function.

The Return to Gym Program is suitable for a wide range of individuals, including:

  • Those who have not been to the gym before and are looking to start safely
  • Individuals who have struggled with gym related injuries
  • Those looking to get back to a gym routine after a period away

As part of the program, we address a variety of factors that contribute to your strength and function:

  • Strength Capacity: Also described as strength endurance, capacity measurements and programming assist in improving fatigue resistance of muscles.
  • Stability: Describes how an individual is able to maintain position during various tasks and types of support - an important component in falls prevention and joint protection
  • Proprioception: Our perception of location, movement and body action. Combines stability, balance, and motor control to provide feedback on our joint position and velocity - important specifically for preventing falls or excessive joint stress/range of motion.
