Ask an Excercise Physiologist
I hope you have all enjoyed the wonderful weather this past weekend and managed to see a few friends or family, all be it socially distanced and within the regulations. It is slow progress but a huge step in the right direction for the state, community and for us here at REPS Movement.
As some of you may have heard the Premier’s roadmap explains that regulation relaxations for gyms will occur in phase 3 although no dates have been set by the government. We hope that the next few weeks go to plan so that we are in a situation to open the doors to our members sooner rather than later. However, in the meantime here is the current REPS Movement status and some exercise options to keep you active and connected.
Exercise Physiology 1 to 1 or small group session – (GP care plans, workers compensation, 1 to 1 training, injury rehabilitation and other private exercise services)
Telehealth Exercise Physiology – options for you to complete your workout in the comfort of your own home with one of our Exercise Physiologists via video link.
Mobile Exercise Physiology home visits - (GP care plans, workers compensation, 1 to 1 training, injury rehabilitation and other private exercise services)
A reminder that all memberships will remain on hold until such time as we notify you that members are able to attend the gym in a self-directed manner. Once we are able to open our doors to members, we will have strict guidelines to follow – these will include social distancing, client and staff hygiene expectations and possible limits to number of people in the centres. These will be outlined clearly to all attendees closer to the time.
Please see below an extract from the WA Government website regarding the opening of gyms:
Gyms can open, but only for fitness classes or small group training and there must be 4 square metres of floor space per person, up to a maximum of 20 participants in total at the venue.
Only classes that do not involve shared equipment should occur. This means you cannot use any gym machines, like Pilates reformers, weight machines, exercise bicycles, rowing machines, and treadmills. Equipment must be cleaned between each class or session. The general gym floor should not be accessible unless part of a supervised personal training session or fitness class that uses minimal shared equipment, as outlined above.
