Our Pilates classes are designed to help you get more from life! We focus on building strength and improving mobility in a safe and effective way.
Come be part of our Sports Lab family where we will help you move well and feel better!


Pre-class Screening

Your safety is important to us. To ensure your safety and to check that you are performing exercises at an appropriate level, we want to get to know you and your body before your first class.

All new class members will attend a one-on-one initial assessment to determine baseline mobility, muscle activation and strength. It is a great opportunity for us to get to know you and to discuss your goals. It is also a chance to teach you the basic movement principles which will be used in class. This may include using our real time ultrasound machine. Ultrasound provides you with instant visual feedback to determine whether you are activating those deep core stabilizing muscles effectively. Having been taught the fundamentals prior to class, it ensures you are performing exercises correctly and ultimately aids your progression.

On completion of your pre-class screening, we will provide you with a report. Your report will detail key findings, your readiness to start, and areas to focus on during the classes. Having obtained your pre-class baselines, we then have the option to review you in the future to assess your progress from attending the classes regularly.

Lab-Tailored Pilates

Our small, physio led, group classes utilize and build upon Pilates principles to help you to optimise your body’s function. We use the information from your pre-class screening to help identify areas of dysfunction and target these during the classes. Our knowledge and experience in biomechanics is applied to give you a tailored and effective service.

The classes are structured to focus on improving mobility (muscular, joint and neural) and enhancing muscle activation and movement patterns. This ultimately leads to improved control and strength. Through the performance of these exercises, over time, you will become more aware of your body’s positioning and posture on a day-to-day basis.

You will receive individualised attention during the class where we can adapt the standard exercises to meet your specific needs. This ensures you are performing exercises at the correct level to keep you safe.
