Let's first have a chat!
Here at OptimalMe we like to get to know you before we discuss how we can help. You may be scared or uncertain about embarking on exercise, or maybe you simply want to know you are moving and exercising correctly to achieve your optimal performance for daily living.
We are here to listen so book in for a 20-minute consultation for just $30 and see if we are a good fit for you. We know you'll love what we have to offer so we're happy to deduct the cost of your consultation off your first Introductory Pack.
At your consultation we will discuss:
- Your fitness history
- Your current physical challenges
- Your preferences for exercise
- What you are hoping to achieve
- Take you through a few simple movements to assess your needs
- Recommend a solution tailored to your situation
We recommend that everyone who consults with us book in for an OptimalMe Corrective Basics Pack. This introductory pack is made up of two 45-minute one-on-one sessions and is ideal for rehabilitation or pain relief. We'll identify and start to address any issues you may have or just ensure you've got the basics right.
You'll learn personalised techniques to release muscle tightness and pain; how to use your muscles correctly to improve posture and balance, and how to breath effectively for improved strength and relaxation. We include postural education for sitting, standing, walking (and running if appropriate) and any other of your regular activities.
We'll send you home with educational and exercise handouts so you can continue to put into practice what you have learned.
Following your Introduction sessions we recommend one or more review sessions, depending on your needs and your budget. Alternatively you can join a group class or consider ongoing personal training.
One to One - Studio or Online
If you don't have any significant issues to address, you may like to consider ongoing personal training. This is ideal for those who prefer one-on-one sessions, want quick results or need their training to fit around their busy lifestyle. You can choose from 30,45 or 60 minute sessions. No fixed contracts - simply book in as required and pay as you go.
Group - Studio or Online
For those who live in the vicinity we offer a range of small group classes to suit your time, budget or exercise demands. And you’ll get the additional advantage of group dynamics with extra fun and support.
For those of you further away or with a challenging timetable, we will soon offer a weekly Zoom group class which you can attend live, or follow a recorded session. You'll notice the difference between being part of a live class where we can keep an eye on you, compared to just following a recorded session, so we encourage live participation if at all possible.
The Gravity Total Gym is the perfect exercise machine for those who don’t like traditional fitness equipment, but is also fun and challenging for those who want to take their fitness to the next level. Read more on Gravity here.
This is the perfect class for those wanting the guidance, support and progression of personal training sessions without the high price. We move back and forth from the Gravity machines (Total Gym incline bodyweight training system) to the floor to take you through all the phases of training from stability to strength to power to really build your capability. More suited to those with some fitness and training experience.
Yoga/Pilates/Tai Chi combo with attitude! If you're looking for a yoga or pilates class but prefer small class sizes and an extra level of challenge on the Total Gym incline gravity machine, this class may be for you! Feel the glideboard and your body weight take you further and deeper to intensify your stretches, strength and balance.
