Healthy Ageing Classes

Movewell classes are designed to help prevent falls. They combine exercises for strength, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility and balance.

Roughly one in three older people have a fall each year. Research shows exercise programmes such as Movewell have the potential to reduce this risk by up to a third.

Movewell classes can be tailored to suit your ability. It’s also possible to do the session seated.

Exercise class FAQs

Before starting one of our classes, you’ll need a one-hour assessment with a physio. This is to allows us to create an individual plan to help you reach your goals.

To make sure you get the most from your class, we will:

  • Take a detailed history of your previous injuries
  • Assess specific muscles
  • Assess your posture
  • Identify weakened areas and begin ‘retraining’
  • Provide a home exercise program and exercise manual

A few participants may need a follow-up session, which we’ll discuss with you.

To book your assessment, give us a call.

Since April, the Department of Health has removed private health insurance rebates for “Pilates” classes. ‘Pilates-informed’ exercises prescribed by physiotherapists are rebateable.
Importantly, Bay Active Physiotherapy has run functional rehabilitation exercise classes for more than 20 years.

Our classes have always been Pilates-informed.

Our group exercise classes have a motor control focus with an emphasis on core stability.They incorporate elements of Pilates, yoga and strength training. As experienced physiotherapists we have a background knowledge of injury and pathology.

We understand why you are injured and how the body works. We use this knowledge together with the latest evidence based research to formulate a safe and effective exercise program that delivers real and measurable results.

We have always strived to monitor our clients and cater to each individuals needs.
