Exercise Classes

If you are suffering from injuries, pain, chronic illness or disease, balance issues or strength and flexibility loss, our small group classes can help. Our Physionorth Townsville clinic is located at 69 Eyre St, North Ward. We have a beautiful, open exercise area, with the choice of 45 minute or 60 minute 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).

Seniors Exercise Classes

This class is especially designed for people who are 60+ years of age. Each participant has an individually written exercise program which they complete under the care of our 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 Exercise Physiologist will progress and/or modify your program each time you attend, depending on your needs on the day.


Strength and Mobility Classes (formerly Pilates)

Our strength and mobility classes are fantastic for preventing pain and injury, managing old injuries, regaining pre baby core strength, optimizing sports performance and achieving strength and flexibility goals.

Our Strength and Mobility class is designed for people who want to build strength and control. The strength and mobility class is limited to a maximum of 4-6 people and utilizes mat exercises, fitball, rings, pilates balls, weights and bands. The class is designed for beginners who have not done this type of exercise before, or those with an injury history, that need more support. The class is 45 minutes in duration.

Participants who have not attended our clinic before are required to have a 1-1 screening with a Physiotherapist prior to entering this class, so that they are aware of your goals, areas of injury and strength deficits, and can target these during class. If you are not able to do an exercise, this is not a problem! The Physiotherapist taking your class with give you an alternative.


Advanced Strength and Mobility Classes (formally Pilates)

This class is for those who are at the intermediate-advanced level with a good fitness level and who need more of a challenge. These classes are also Physiotherapist lead and include mat exercises, fitball, rings, pilates balls, weights and bands. There are a maximum of 8-10 in a class and classes run for an hour. Although this is a slightly more advanced class, the Physiotherapist will still modify any exercises you are having difficulty with or you are finding too easy. All participants have a pre screening with the Physiotherapist prior to participating in classes, so they are aware of your goals and injury history.


Functional Training

Functional Training incorporates aspects of functional movement, strength & conditioning and trunk stability training. This class is designed for those active individuals going to a gym, playing sports (running, touch, football, netball, golf, athletics etc.) and wanting to know the best exercises to improve overall athleticism. Due to the high level exercises and time spent with class participants, it is best suited to those who can run, jump and are pain/ injury free.


Private Classes

Are Initial Screening Sessions Essential?

All participants are required to undergo an initial  screening assessment to ensure their safety and to make sure there goals are met in the class. This is a 30min consultation with one of our qualified Physiotherapist’s or Exercise Physiologists who run the classes.

This screening includes a postural assessment, your past injury history, your current fitness level, your current core strength level and any areas that need to be focused on.

Your initial assessment will also teach you how to find your neutral spine position and how to move one segment of your spine independently of other segments. This will help you keep a good posture and improve your body awareness while participating in class.

After you have completed a course of Pilates sessions you can book in for another screening session to monitor your progress.

Equipment is available to be purchased at the clinic if you’d 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.
