Ever wonder if the exercises that you’re doing are specifically targeting weak muscles? Do you have an injury that you want to prevent from re-occurring? Do you lay in a class thinking… am I doing this exercise correctly? Are you one of those people that don’t like working out in front of others? Someone who would never be seen in a gym, but want to work on your strength and endurance? Then Pilates could be just what you need.

Physio led Pilates sessions are designed to be specific to you. From the moment you walk into the session, to when you leave, Pilates is about tailoring a program to your needs. Each muscle group is assessed for its strength, endurance and effectiveness. Understanding your medical history gives more insight in how best to help you get the most from classes. Combining our Physio knowledge of the body, injury, recovery and movement with the 1:1 assessment will reassure you that each exercise you are asked to perform will be appropriate for you and your body to give you the most benefit. Not only are you assessed for specific weaknesses, but you are taught exercises that can specifically target them and prevent future injuries!

Doing Pilates in a large group for the first time can sometimes be daunting; but a 1:1 session can help boost your confidence and teach you the key elements so you can easily grasp the concept. You will feel more confident with the exercises, and learn how to perform them properly prior to entering a group setting.

You are safe under the supervision of your Physio and you will feel reassured that you are doing the best thing for your body right now. You won’t be asked to do anything that would put you at risk of hurting yourself. The Physio can make small adjustments to an area that “drives” the problems you are experiencing resulting in improved movement quality and reduced pain.

Each exercise can be modified to keep you moving, even if you have an acute problem or pain. Your Physio with select highly specific exercises, enabling you to reach your goals faster. Pilates is also a great way to complement and enhance the benefits of your existing classes and training. We use the latest evidence in movement mechanics, training and rehab within our Pilates sessions.

I have been attending The Physio Lounge since September 2019 twice a week after a serious motorcycle accident with very complex injuries. I have nothing but admiration for Craig and his colleagues dealing and treating me. They have shown me total respect, and without doubt have made my recovery better and quicker than I could of ever expected.

I have been treated by Craig at the Physiolounge several times over the last few years for various different running injuries. I’m always impressed by his knowledge, dedication and skill. He even managed In the last few weeks to remotely diagnose and cure a knee problem I had! I would highly recommend Physiolounge.
