Our kids and teens gym caters for children and young adolescents who require an individualised gym program. Whether this is for general fitness, co-ordination, strengthening or sports specific training; management of a chronic disease such as diabetes or asthma; or a natural progression toward taking control of their own condition, our paediatric physiotherapists are there to guide, modify and progress each individual to help achieve their goals. Programs are designed by our physiotherapists and can be tailored for children of all abilities, as well as those not old enough to attend an adult gym. These sessions are suitable for children eight years of age and older. Our goal for these individuals is to progress onto attending our gym independently, supervised under our Gym Membership program (two month membership with unlimited sessions).
These sessions are ideal for:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Pervasive Developmental Disorders / Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Scoliosis and other Postural conditions
- Hypermobility Syndromes and Arthritis
- Asthma and other Respiratory conditions
- Musculoskeletal and Sporting injury rehabilitation
- Diabetes and Weight management

Programs focus on a number of goals:
