Why Gym Start?

PhysioTec Blog Feature Images-12

Welcome to the first blog post of our strength and conditioning series. Physiotec has recently recruited physiotherapists with specific experience in strength and conditioning. We recognise the need to give people access to strength training, especially coming back from injury. However, uninjured people will also benefit from the service.

In our clinic, we see more and more people who are engaging in gym based training and this ranges from young adolescents to elderly people.  The goals for strength training for the individual may be different but the fundamentals are the same: good form and appropriate loading. It is our goal to provide this service for our clients to enjoy strength training in a safe and effective manner.

We aim to update our blog regularly and provide some easy to digest content on all things strength training. In the meantime, keep up to date with our clinic via social media:

Squats and Deadlifts. What suits you???

By Eric Huang | 6 June 2022
