Group Exercise Classes
Group exercise classes are a great way to work towards your goals, stay motivated and have fun in a safe and supervised environment. Between our two clinics at Hughesdale and Blackburn, Steps Neurological therapy services has you covered. We run general strength and conditioning classes, condition specific exercise classes, telehealth, and Pilates classes.
All group exercise classes are supervised by an Exercise Physiologist and are designed to be run in small class sizes to ensure you get the support you need. Each exercise class is tailored to you and are individually prescribed to address your cardiovascular fitness, strength, and balance goals.
Prior to commencing a group exercise class our Exercise Physiologist will complete an assessment to guide you to the most beneficial group for your needs and to prescribe a program individually designed to help you reach your goals.
