Exercise Classes

If you would like to get yourself healthy and motivated, our small group classes can help. If you are suffering from injuries, pain, chronic illness or disease, balance issues or strength and flexibility loss, we accommodate for this in our group classes. Our Physionorth Townsville clinic is located at 69 Eyre St, North Ward. We have a beautiful, open exercise area, with a wide range of choice in classes which are all lead by either a Physiotherapist or an Accredited Exercise Physiologist. All classes are eligible for private health fund rebates (subject to your individual policy inclusions). 

Participants who have not attended our clinic before are required to have a 1-1 screening with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist prior to entering a class, so that they are aware of your goals, areas of injury and strength deficits, and can target these during class.

Seniors Exercise Classes

This class is specially designed for people who are 50+ years of age. Each participant has an individually written exercise program which they complete under the care of our Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist, carried out in a small group setting. Each program address’ the individual areas of need including strength, balance, muscle weakness, flexibility, and pain. Your Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist will progress and/or modify your program each time you attend, depending on your needs on the day.

Are Initial Screening Sessions Essential?

All participants are required to undergo an initial screening assessment to ensure their safety and to make sure their goals are met in the class. This is a consultation with one of our qualified Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists who run the classes.

This screening includes assessments applicable to you and your goals and any other areas that need to be focused on. Your initial assessment will also teach you how to find the most appropriate, safe, and effective exercises for you.

After you have completed a series of any of the group classes you can book in for another screening session to monitor your progress.

Equipment is available to be purchased at the clinic if you would like to continue your exercises at home.

***Classes do not run on public holidays and in some cases if our Physiotherapists who instruct the classes are away those classes will be cancelled for that time with enough notice to those who attend regularly.
