Adolescent Strength Program
Adolescent Strength Program

The Adolescent Strengthening Program focuses on muscular strength, power and control, flexibility, balance, jumping and landing and agility for those aged 10-18 years old.

Benefits of this class

Strength training has been illustrated to have many benefits for adolescents, including improved muscular power and strength, aids in injury rehabilitation and prevention, improved bone health, mental health benefits and can help contribute to improvements in overall sporting performance.

Why strength is important

Many of the physiotherapists across both Spring and Kooyong have noticed many adolescents playing one or more sports across the year. While it is great to have so many young people fit and active, deficits in muscle strength or control is potentially putting them at risk of injury or reinjury when playing sport.

Using the gym at Spring, this program aims to help prevent injuries in adolescent individuals by reducing any strength deficits that may leave them vulnerable for injury in the future.

Classes Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book straight into a class?

No, you must start with an assessment with a physiotherapist.

After your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will design an exercise programme specifically for you.

The next appointment will be a one-on-one with your physio, discussing your programme in detail.

Should your physio think it appropriate, you will join a small class with others who will all be working on their individual goals, guided and supervised by physios.

Do I need a class or a one-on-one?

It depends. The factors that decide whether you will require a one-on-one or class format include:

Physical ability

If you require maximum supervision a therapist will be with you at all times in a one-on-one setting. 

More commonly, a small group setting provides adequate supervision once the program is designed and implemented by your physiotherapist. A class setting allows for a more cost effective way of receiving your physio-supervised exercise programme.

Group appropriateness and availability

With one-on-one care, the pathway to learning independent exercise can be quicker as more time is spent individually teaching and explaining the programme. For some people, this is the quickest and most effective way to learn how to become independent with your healthy life plan.

Social and motivational interactions in our group classes can inspire and build an encouraging environment for some people. For those that enjoy exercising with others, this can be an excellent stimulus for making changes in your life. 

It’s also great to see other people at all levels of physical function and fitness exercising, and making improvements.

One-on-one is suitable for:

  • People requiring maximum supervision.
  • Those wanting maximum input in the early stages to help speed up the road to independent exercise.
  • People who prefer a one-on-one environment over group exercise.

Groups are suitable for:

  • People safe enough to be in small groups to implement their programme.
  • People requiring slower and more supervised programme delivery for a longer period before becoming independent with exercise.
  • People preferring group exercise to engage with others to motivate and be motivated.

What do I wear to Physio Supervised Exercise Classes?

Please wear comfortable clothing for your work out. Those that have a cardio component to exercise are advised to bring a towel. Yoga pants, track pants or bike shorts are the best for workouts to ensure maximum movement and modesty.

How long do classes run for?

Classes run for approximately 60 minutes.

What classes are offered at Kooyong Physiotherapy Centre?

A small number of physio supervised core stability and strength classes are offered at Kooyong Physiotherapy Centre. Please speak with your physiotherapist about classes at our Kooyong site

What is your class cancellation policy?

We require notification of cancellation on the day prior to your scheduled class, otherwise a cancellation fee will be incurred.
