  • We recommend an INITIAL APPOINTMENTto assess your suitability for exercise program including taking your history and conducting a few basic clinical and physical tests. Following this we will design an exercise program tailored to you and suggest our available group classes. Prior to joining the group classes, we recommend 2 to 4 one-on-one sessions with our physiotherapist to get you familiarised with the exercise, equipment and to assess how you tolerate the exercise intensity.
  • You also get to participate in two FREE education sessions which may give you further opportunities to ask question and learn more aboutconditions like low back pain andOA. These education sessions may range from education about what the conditions are, better dietary management, work ergonomics etc.

  • Semi-supervised classes: The numbers in this class may vary from 5 to 12, as it is expected that you will have learnt from your supervised sessions and require lesser supervision.
