Fitness for General Health

If you are looking for guidance on how to exercise to improve your overall health and fitness, we can set you up with a program to do at home or in the gym. After some baseline assessments, we can take you through an exercise program that is effective, fun and easy to include into your daily life. At Glebe Physio, we have accredited exercise physiologists who have many years of experience and know the best ways of prescribing exercise that works best for you.

As well as individualised programs, we also have classes available for those who enjoy the social atmosphere of exercise and want to do an exercise class run by a professional physiotherapist or exercise physiologist.

What to Expect at Exercise Physiology

 

Arriving for the appointment:

At your first exercise physiology appointment, you will be asked to arrive 10 minutes ahead of the appointment time to complete a short form about yourself.

Initial Consultation:

During the consultation, we will ask you a series of questions regarding yourself, your medical history as well as your goals. We will then perform a series of baseline tests to assess your current fitness level and to establish a baseline that we can measure against in the future. During the consultation we will then prescribe you a comprehensive exercise or training program that is individualised and evidence-based. We will then go through this exercise program together and provide you with a printed handout showing these exercises with descriptions and photos. With this handout also comes a link to see your individualised program online, which includes photos and videos.

Follow-up Consultations:

In most situations, you will benefit from a number of follow-up appointments to reassess the program and progress the prescription accordingly. This will ensure that you get the best out of your exercise program and reach your goals in a timely manner. The number of follow-up appointments differ on a case-by-case basis and we are happy to discuss this with you.

Do I need a referral to make an appointment?

No. Exercise Physiologists are first-contact, primary healthcare professionals in Australia and that means that you can book an appointment without seeing your doctor first. Many of our patients are referred from GPs and specialists but many choose to see us themselves.

How much does an appointment cost?

For our latest pricing, please see our fees page.

Do you accept private health insurance?

Physiotherapy is covered by private health funds as part of “extras” cover and we have HICAPS facilities to charge your health fund on the day of the appointment. The amount that your private health fund pays will depend on your policy.

Is physiotherapy covered by Medicare?

Physiotherapy is generally not covered by Medicare but you can get part funding from Medicare through a Chronic Disease Management Plan if your GP refers you with one of these.
