pilates-imageWe’ve all heard it, we’ve all said it, but for some reason, we rarely carry through with it… New Year’s resolutions. How many times have you decided to start looking after your body, to ‘get healthy’ or to get on top of an ongoing injury or niggle in the new year… and then the year after and so it goes. Let’s make 2017 a year to make our own health a priority!

Have you ever considered Pilates? Pilates is a low impact form of exercise for the whole body, focusing on movement control and activation through movement and can assist with muscle strengthening and lengthening. Clinical Pilates programs are designed specifically to address your areas of concern. With each person having their own program you can start, progress and move at your own pace in a safe and supportive environment with a qualified physiotherapist at hand to monitor technique and to progress or modify exercises as indicated. At 4 Life Physiotherapy, we also run Fit Pilates Classes. These classes are great for people with no specific injuries or concerns, who are looking for a low impact form of exercise to help with their mobility, strength, bone health and general wellbeing. To book in for Pilates or for more information please call us on 9583 5200.
