Here at North West Physiotherapy Everton Park, we pride ourselves on creating a very positive and friendly environment, ensuring you feel welcome from your very first Seniors Class.
Regardless of your physical attributes and exercise goal, our physiotherapists can monitor and modify your exercises to ensure a challenging but safe whole-body workout.
What to Expect Attending Our Seniors Class
Prior to your first class, all participants will be required to undergo an assessment to identify your current physical strengths and weaknesses (such as mobility, strength, coordination and balance).
Your physiotherapist will record your scores at your initial assessment, reassessing the same tests at regular intervals to track your improvements. This is not designed to intimidate, rather provide a benchmark so we can celebrate your wins with you!
