Exercise class FAQs
How do I enrol?
Before starting one of our classes, you'll need a one-hour assessment with a physio. This is to allows us to create an individual plan to help you reach your goals.
To make sure you get the most from your class, we will:
Take a detailed history of your previous injuries
Assess specific muscles
Assess your posture
Identify weakened areas and begin 'retraining'
Provide a home exercise program and exercise manual
A few participants may need a follow-up session, which we'll discuss with you.
To book your assessment, give us a call.
What do classes cost?
Exercise classes are payable by the term. The price includes expert guidance and all equipment. Simply bring your own towel, comfy clothes and well-fitting gym shoes!

Our classes are claimable through most private health funds – call your fund to discuss as coverage varies.
Classes follow the state-school term, with occasional holiday classes available separately.
Private Health insurance reforms
As of April 1, 2019, the Department of Health will remove private health insurance rebates for "Pilates" classes. 'Pilates-informed' exercises prescribed by physiotherapists are rebateable.
Importantly, Bay Active Physiotherapy has run functional rehabilitation exercise classes for more than 20 years.
Our classes have always been Pilates-informed.
Our group exercise classes have a motor control focus with an emphasis on core stability.They incorporate elements of Pilates, yoga and strength training. As experienced physiotherapists we have a background knowledge of injury and pathology.
We understand why you are injured and how the body works. We use this knowledge together with the latest evidence based research to formulate a safe and effective exercise program that delivers real and measurable results.
We have always strived to monitor our clients and cater to each individuals needs.
With this in mind, in the next few weeks we will ask each class participant to complete one of two short questionnaires. These are functional exercise scales and are simply to assist us with helping you achieve your exercise goals in 2019.
*Rate to be paid upfront in week one for participants booking onto a specific weekly class. We do not credit or refund missed classes and classes are not transferable. Missed classes may be made up at another Bay Active class within the same term, dependent on availability. Fees are non-negotiable and receipts are issued at the end of each term. In case of unexpected low numbers, we reserve the right to change the class time or class level at any time.
