Do I have to be a member to use the gym?

Yes, the rehab gym is specifically for Lake Health Group patients. Anyone who is not a current patient will require a prior appointment to see one of our Physiotherapists and have a Gym Assessment to determine a safe and effective exercise program for you.

How is a physiotherapist’s tailored gym program different form other gym programs?
“We’ll listen to your concerns and design a personalised exercise program”

Having your own personalised program is essential to fitness, strength and functionality. An assessment by our physiotherapists can identify the weak links in your body system and individualise a program to help improve your functional fitness

Your program will be based on:

  • Functional tasks, within a specific environment. This means mimicking actual tasks that are important to you, such as digging in the garden, or improving agility on the sporting field.

  • Your injury history

  • Best available current evidence to achieve the best outcomes.

  • An individualised and goal orientated approach. This will give meaning to your program as it will be specific to your needs and injury history.

  • Flexibility, core control, endurance, strength and power requirements.

  • Principles of dosage, frequency and periodization. Let your physiotherapist guide you through how many ‘reps’, ‘sets’, ‘duration’, and ‘times per week’ will
achieve the best result.

  • Feedback on your technique and program needs. We have the ability to rapidly make small alterations to your program which can make a big difference to your outcomes
