Create your unique fitness plan
a) Where would you like to begin your movement journey?
Choose a performance bracket:
- Beginners: I am new to exercise
- Intermediate: I exercise 2-3 times a week
- Advanced: I exercise frequently
This will determine the level of difficulty for each of your programs. You can access programs across all levels although your recommended programs will be sourced from your identified performance bracket. For those people who are unable to get on or off the floor we have a range of programs in standing or sitting.
b) Where are you experiencing pain?
- Lower back
Select all that are applicable. This will help us accommodate your programs. Leave this blank if you have no pain in these areas or do not wish the app to modify recommended programs for you.
Appropriate exercises within each program to accommodate your identified pain areas. For example, if you identify your knees as a source of pain with exercise, the platform will automatically provide an alternate exercise that avoids aggravating your knee pain.
c) What are your goals?
Choose 1 or 2 goals to begin your journey. The app will recommend the best programs for you to reach your selected goals.
d) What are your interests?
The app will recommend the best programs to help you support your selected interests. For instance, there are programs to help you become or stay fit for gardening (Garden Fit), travelling (Travel fit) or staying fit in the workforce (Work Fit/ Office Fit).
You can change these preferences at any time by selecting the button ‘RETAKE QUESTIONNAIRE’.
Start moving and connect to ‘My Clinician’

b) Book My Clinician Session
