What we can do for you

01. Individual sessions – CEP

Our individualized clinical gym program is based on the concepts of Clinical Exercise Physiology (CEP), which originated from Australia, the US, and Canada due to the increasing demand for effective yet safe exercise programming for acute and chronic health conditions and disabilities. What has developed into a Master-level qualification and often specialization after Physiotherapy, CEP focuses on patients’ exercise screening, assessments, programming, and reassessment to encourage long-term positive behavior change and empowerment.

Our Clinical Gym is lead by Katina McCulloch (co-founder of Waves) who is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist with Exercise Sport Science Australia (ESSA) and a member of the American College of Sport Medicine.

Our team is composed of physiotherapists or highly-experienced personal trainers who specialise in holistic exercise practices to actively support you and your short- and long-term goals. As a team we have the skills and knowledge base to work with a wide range of conditions, including those which are rare and complex.

Do you have any conditions in the following health areas? Then we may be the perfect spot for you.
