• Pilates

    I’m Carmen, the new Pilates instructor at Active Physiotherapy Mackay. I have been teaching Pilates for 3 years. Pilates is a tried and tested form of exercise that is designed to improve ‘function’ via increasing strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination. An unstable ‘core’ (lower back, abdominals and pelvis muscles) contributes to an increased risk of injury.

    I am looking at creating new classes for 2018 at Active including a Barre class, Pilates circuit class and Mums & Bubs classes.

    Pilates circuit, is a type of “interval training,” meaning it combines cardio elements that make you sweat with resistance training to build lean muscles.

    Pilates Barre, it is a balanced blend of strength and flexibility training that improves posture, reduces stress, and creates lean, long muscles without bulking up

    Mums and Bubs, the classes are specifically designed for the needs of you and your new baby. You will enjoy a safe, rewarding and fun environment that can assist in regaining lost fitness and strength while also interacting with other mothers and their babies

    If you are interested in any of these classes, please give us a call on 49533557 or email reception@activephysiomackay.com.au.  

    We also offer Clinical Pilates classes, delivered by a qualified physiotherapist who is able to tailor a routine to individual needs and future goals. Please click on the 'Classes' tab above for all our class times.
