Those components will help you improve your fitness level and help you overcome obstacles that challenge your agility, balance, coordination, endurance and strength in everyday life.
Recovering from injury can be frustrating, painful and seem to take such a long time. Whether it be work-related, as a result of a fall or car accident or a sporting injury, the natural progression to full range of motion and developing strength and function is through rehabilitation.

Julie Andrews is a qualified injury and sports rehabilitation trainer with the skills & knowledge necessary to help you regain strength, function, range of movement and confidence. Dedicated to working with your health care specialist to promote wellness in a safe and compassionate manner.
Once rehabilitation has been achieved, and you have been ’cleared’ by your health care specialist, we can then structure a regular, balanced program to maintain fitness. Just contact us to see how we can get started.
