Every single client undergoes a full clinical, functional and musculoskeletal assessment, which underpins the development of his or her individual programme. All of our sessions are closely monitored, with regular assessments to evaluate performance and measure improvement.
Outside their 1-1 sessions, our clients have access to Core Physio’s in-house massage and physical therapy teams, along with nutritional guidance and coaching to support them on their journey.
Core Physio is uniquely able to offer a rigorous clinical approach within a welcoming, supportive and empowering boutique environment, and, through our care pathways, to enable clients to progress from illness/poor health through rehabilitation and clinical exercise to functional exercise and fitness.
Why Core Physio?
Mainstream gyms, personal trainers and fitness providers generally lack the capability to deliver Clinical exercise. Gym staff are not qualified in or capable of working safely with clients whose conditions require specialist skills and training. Designed for ‘DIY’ workouts rather than expertly guided sessions, gyms typically lack our sustainable approach to exercise, level of trainer expertise and in-house Physio and Massage therapy provisions and rehab capabilities.
In contrast, Core Physio has an in-depth knowledge of experience providing expertly taught guided sessions (whether classes or 1-1), and we offer a uniquely integrated and in-house care pathway, to support our clinical capability, along with a significantly more expert, personal, inclusive, supportive and welcoming experience.
What’s Clinical Exercise?
Clinical exercise differs from standard personal training sessions in a number of ways, the most fundamental being that goals are dictated by the client’s needs rather than their wants.
So rather than being about aesthetics, weight loss or running the marathon in under 4 hours, the first priority is client safety, with sessions designed around proven scientific and medical principles to help clients manage a life-changing condition and improve quality of life.
Unlike normal personal training, collaboration and information sharing with the clients’ consultant is ongoing, along with frequent measurement and evaluation of baseline clinical indicators, especially blood pressure, resting heart rate, body composition and medications.
Medication can affect the way the body tolerates exercise, so clients’ prescription, dosage, and frequency are incorporated into session planning and programming. As are external factors that can impact either clinical symptoms or physical capability – including client lifestyle, external stress levels, and mood.
