Structure of the sessions:

Sessions are group based 4-6 clients and last around 45-60 minutes. Each client will complete anywhere from 6-8 different exercises at various ‘stations’ to complete a circuit.

There are two ways a circuit is recorded.

  1. A Set Time Circuit:  You work for 30-60 seconds and rest for 15-30 seconds in between.
  2. A Rep Circuit: You have a specified number of repetitions to complete for each given exercise before you move to the next.

At Lilyfield Physio every session is designed specifically for the needs of the group. Your session will include a mix of functional and conventional exercises with the focus on quality movement and enjoyment of exercise.

It is fun and rewarding for both your mind and body.
