Online & Phone Advice and Programming
Due to current restrictions on the fitness industry from COVID-19 we are unable to offer physical sessions.
We are however happy to help you create a self-motivated health and fitness program to suit your needs and goals.
We've moved to an online/phone version of health and fitness coaching. Sign up to our email list for weekly emails with information, articles, youtube links and ideas that you can run with.
We can work through individualised programming online/over the phone if you'd like help to get started or to deal with any physical issues, nutrition advice, maintaining your fitness and even obtaining exercise equipment.

Health & Fitness Assessment with home program - online/phone appointment
We want to help you to help yourself. So lets start at the start and we will help you plan, start and maintain an exercise program, and if you'd like we can look at nutrition too!
An assessment allows us to recognise where you're at, what you need to be doing and lets us start a plan. We need to identify what you currently do with your exercise and nutrition practices and where you can make improvements.
Our goal is to help you help yourself. Use our knowledge to make a plan, but your own work and motivation is what will get you results. A little help initially can let you make progress well.
Tools we use to help you achieve goals:
Cardiovascular Exercise Programming: we will work through options that will work for you and set up the program.
Pilates Exercises - online
We've been teaching the Pilates method for eighteen years and have found the best exercises for improving the weak links and mobilising the restricted areas of your body. We can teach you a great routine for your own personal use.
A good Pilates Mat class takes a thorough, all over, all direction approach to keeping your body functioning well.
Goals for Pilates can be to move better, become stronger, gain health and confidence through movement.
We recommend this class for every-body.
Senior's Exercise - online
Our Senior's Exercise is aimed at seniors and those with movement restrictions which make exercising challenging. We aim to increase mobility, strength and balance components of physicality. Sessions are low-moderate intensity. We hope to gain confidence and ability through physical fitness improvements. All exercises can be done with minimal equipment.
Myofascial Release - online
Myofascial Release is where we work to treat and condition the muscles. Also known as trigger point therapy, and commonly used in massage therapy (you know when the therapist pushes into those sore spots and holds til they release - well you can treat your own trigger points).
We teach you how to do your own treatments. It's this knowledge and ability to treat your body when and where you need that changes the situation. Can't get range in a squat? Lets figure out the restriction. Can't get your arm to directly overhead position? Let's treat the chest and shoulder area.
It's almost like cheating! We can get your body moving better and less pain by treating these trigger points to improve muscular function and allow the body to realign.
There's just a few small tools you'll need to complete these exercises.
Functional Movement - online
We want you to get back to living ASAP! We don't want to keep you as a rehab client, we want you to become a fitness client and will help you get there with tools and teachings that equip you for the journey. You'll do the work, but we're here for you.
How we help you to move from rehab to fitness:
We base our rehab programs on latest research functional movement training programs from a prominent Queensland based Neurosurgeon. We teach you how to move as a lot of pain and issues arise from poor movement patterns.
We add in a few touches from our other skill sets (Pilates, assessment, myofascial release) to ensure you're getting all the components you need.
Functional Movement Training is teaching you to move throughout day to day movements using your body and joints correctly. FMT is the missing link in back rehabilitation and is necessary for every person to learn, even those without pain or problems. FMT forms the basis of all movement and allows for progress of skills and resistance. We recommend all our clients complete FMT training with us.
Book a session that is specifically for functional movement training.
Book some personal training sessions to go through the skills of functional movement training.
We can help you to source the equipment you need to successfully work out at home. Some small inexpensive pieces will give you lots of options and help your program.
We can hire some of it to you if you're in our local drop-off areas (Rainbow Beach, Cooloola Cove, Tin Can Bay, Gympie). Start with the Assessment session to determine your program. Then we will help you to acquire sensible, smart options for home exercise.
