    REFORMER PHYSIO CLASS

    About:

    Reformer Physio classes are run by our Physiotherapists who understand your back, posture and core stability. Classes can be adapted to suit each individual member reach their goals and work to their individual ability.

One - on - one sessions also available upon request.  

    What is the difference between Mat  & Reformer Classes?

    Reformer classes can be more targeted, and can be a higher level of gentle exercise. Resistance is applied via a reformer bed which has several levels of resistance to cater for all abilities. Exercises on the reformers could include a variation of balance, pilates and stretches to target all areas of the body and can increase muscle strength due to the targeted resistance that is greater than just body weight, as in our Mat classes. It is personal preference so come down and try both classes out and see for yourself.  

    What is a reformer bed?

    The reformer is a bed-like frame with a flat platform, called the carriage; the carriage rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame. On one end of the reformer, the carriage is attached by a set of springs. These springs provide various levels of resistance to movements performed on the carriage. At the other end of the carriage, there are shoulder blocks that stabilise the upper trunk. Near the springs, there is also an adjustable bar called the footbar, which can be either used by feet or hands. The reformer also has long straps with handles that attach at the top end of the frame. With these handles, the carriage can be moved with either arms or legs. All reformer parts are adjustable for different body sizes and skill levels.  
    Cost:
    Our reformer classes cost $32.00 per class, for the length of the term. For example, a ten week term would cost $320.00. Prior to taking part in the group class you are asked to attend a pre-screening assessment with one of our Physio's to ensure your safety and so that we can provide best direction for you and your body. We have a limit of 3 participants per class for our reformer classes and we encourage you to bring a towel and drink bottle.  
    Terms & Conditions:
    Classes run on a school term basis with an upfront payment required. A non-refundable deposit is required at time of initial term sign up to secure your spot.

  • CANCER REHAB CLASS

    Cancer rehabilitation and exercise can reduce side effects of the disease and debilitating cancer treatments, and can improve functional ability, quality of life and ultimately, survival. We understand that while surviving cancer can be difficult, recovery can also become difficult if your body is deconditioned. We know some clients can find it difficult to complete certain exercise programs due to pain, feeling sick or fatigue levels. It is not uncommon to need regular rest breaks or modified exercises on your road to recovery. Therefore, it is recommended you listen to your body and find a way you can keep moving and being active in any way possible to optimise your recovery.

    Exercise is a safe and effective evidence-based intervention to counter the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment.

    • *Improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy and other cancer treatment, as well as minimising the side effects of these treatments
    • *Improve muscle and bone strength
    • *Lower your risk of cancer recurrence
    • *Improve your energy levels, mood and posture
    • *Improve your sleep
    • *Improve your quality of life
    When people don’t get rehabilitated after cancer it can affect people differently. It could affect their ability to work, their families, their physical, emotional & social well-being and their long-term health. That’s where Baw Baw Physio & Fitness can help YOU (or your loved one). We want to get you back doing the things you love.
