Strengthening Program

Improve your overall health and fitness with a tailor made strengthening program

Strength training is about more than just gaining muscle mass. It’s about working on your less used muscles – including your abdominals, glutes, hip muscles, and the muscles surrounding your spine – in order to improve stability and better support your spine.

On top of this, strength training can make your life easier by enabling you to do everyday tasks at home and in the workplace with greater ease.

Furthermore, it’s a safe and effective way to recover from a recent injury or major surgery by rebuilding lost muscle mass, while improving your joint flexibility, posture, and overall balance.

Benefits of strength exercises

Whether you require strength training to become better at sport, or to just perform daily activities in the home or workplace, a tailor made strength program can help:

  • Increase your muscle mass
  • Make your bones stronger by increasing their density and thereby reducing the risk of fractures
  • Keep your joints flexibility and reduce the risk of arthritis
  • Increase your balance and flexibility
  • Help you burn more calories and lose weight faster

Whatever your ideal strength goals, your mobile physiotherapist will work closely with you to establish realistic and achievable goals, and help you get there in the safest, most comfortable and efficient way.

Individual programs for you

Andrew Hamilton is a qualified mobile physiotherapist with over 22 years of experience helping all types of people improve their strength and fitness levels.

On a suitable day and time, Andrew will personally visit your home or aged care facility. He will assess your current fitness level, establish clear and realistic goals, and help you achieve those goals by recommending a range of safe and suitable strength exercises.

All sessions are held in the comfort and privacy of your own living space.

Plus, Andrew brings all the necessary tables and equipment to you. So you don’t have to worry about spending money on – or making space in your living room – for expensive equipment.

What to expect from your program

Most strengthening programs are divided up into stages.

Each stage is designed to focus on specific muscle groups, typically starting with the deep muscles that stabilise your spine, before moving onto developing your arm and leg movements and focusing on core strength exercises.

Furthermore, each stage becomes gradually more challenging as you progress. Of course, Andrew will carefully monitor your progress, and ensure that you only move onto the next set of exercises until you have fully mastered the basics first.

Most people benefit from at least 2-3 strength training sessions per week. The frequency of each session may vary based on your circumstances.

Types of strengthening exercises

The type of exercises you get will depend on a range of factors. This includes your current level of fitness, any pre-existing conditions or disabilities you may have, and the goals you hope to achieve.

If you’ve recently had surgery, your surgeon’s guidelines may influence what exercises you can and should be doing in order to recover.

Some of the most common strengthening exercise we help our clients learn include:

  • Weight lifting and training
  • Resistance bands
  • Pilates and yoga
  • Exercise balls
  • Wobbleboards to improve balance

Your individual program may involve a combination of the above mentioned treatments. Again, your physiotherapist will determine the best combination of treatments to suit your specific needs.
