CORE FOUNDATIONS exercise physiologists provide you with the tools and empowerment to leave you feeling and moving better.
Through the power of movement, an accredited exercise physiologist can help you rehabilitate your body and become more body aware with strategies and education. Movement is also a powerful ‘drug’ when it comes to managing and beating chronic disease.
Our accredited exercise physiologists are post-graduate degree qualified allied health professionals who specialise in exercise prescription through evidence-based clinical care.
The first session with CORE FOUNDATIONS will always be a Foundation Session.
This is an important step in getting to know our clients and enables us to build a clear picture of how they move and what their specific needs are. This information is the foundation from which we build the personalised solution to address each individual’s needs and ensure that we structure our programs in a way that is safe and responsive to our clients’ specific health needs.
There are two key parts of the Foundation Session:
- Information gathering about medical conditions, lifestyle and environment; and a
- Physical assessment
ONE TO ONE
We use the results of the Foundation session to prescribe an exercise program to address our clients’ specific needs. We specialise in delivering safe and effective exercise programs using an active approach to treatment through mobility, stability, strength and movement.

MOVEMENT FOR LIFE: NEUROLOGICAL PROGRAM
Exercise can be successfully applied to improve health and wellbeing for individuals living with chronic disease and is particularly effective for those living with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and MS.
Our Movement for Life program draws on the exercise philosophy of PD Warrior, which is a program designed to help slow Parkinson’s down. Bringing together the latest evidence and implementing the ‘Training BIG’ method it proves that exercise is medicine. Drawing on these techniques we can design effective programs for those managing other neurological conditions.
