With an emphasis on core conditioning, breathing and body awareness, our Core, Strength & Mobility classes are a safe and highly effective way to stretch, strengthen and streamline your body without building bulk or stressing your joints.

Core, Strength & Mobility classes utilise various exercises that incorporate balance, power, strength and stability.  

This can be done either using the Pilates equipment (reformer, trapeze table, exercise ball etc.) in a CSM Studio class or the form of a Mat Class, utilising bodyweight and minimal equipment. From here, we build and progress your program as appropriate with continued advice and education throughout, so you left feeling a better version of YOU.  

Our Core, Strength & Mobility classes are a fitness regime for life, performed on a mat or with specialised equipment. The perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, sport, rehab and life, these classes will leave you looking toned, feeling revitalised and moving with ease.

Both Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists run our classes with Clinical Pilates Experience. Clinical Pilates refers to one-on-one Pilates that are often used for injury rehabilitation and used in conjunction with physiotherapy. Sports & Spinal offers both and can cater to your exact needs.

All patients are required to have an initial assessment with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist before beginning any of our classes. This is to familiarise patients with any equipment, positions, and exercises and identify any injuries/restrictions that we may need to be aware of prior to a patient attending a class.

Woolloongabba Sports & Spinal is NDIS registered and accepts Medicare rebates and HICAPS health fund claims. EFTPOS and credit card facilities are also available for payment. 

Core, Strength & Mobility classes are perfect for toning and reshaping the body. It works on creating long, lean muscles, toning all of those hard to target areas such as the abdominals, inner thighs, buttocks, back of thighs, sides and backs of the arms. For toning, these classes are best performed 3 to 5 times a week through a combination of studio sessions, mat classes and home exercises.

Pilates exercises are performed through a wide range of movements and work on lengthening the muscles at the same time as strengthening them. To increase flexibility, stretching exercises need to be performed daily.

The Clinical Pilates exercises used in our Core, Strength & Mobility classes focus on strengthening the weakened postural muscles and stretching the tight muscles that pull the body into these poor postures. Studio sessions are the best way to improve posture as our physiotherapists can develop a program to target your specific postural problems. Pilates can also be used for back pain as it relaxes and strengthens the muscles, easing the discomfort.

Our Core, Strength & Mobility classes use Clinical Pilates techniques which are fantastic for injury rehabilitation and prevention as it works on core stability, posture, flexibility, and correcting muscle imbalances and weaknesses via specific strengthening. It can be used for arthritis, neck pain, back pain and various injuries.

Pilates is the secret tool that many high level and recreational athletes use to enhance their performance, decrease the risk of injuries and provide much-needed cross-training. Each sport has specific strength and flexibility requirements. When you book in for an assessment, your physiotherapist will look at the things you need to work on to improve your performance and then proceed to design a Pilates program for you.

Physiotherapy was a comfortable career choice for Alex after excelling and competing at an elite level of Triathlon from a young age. Alex has spent his career in private Physiotherapist practice on the south side of Brisbane city. He graduated with a Bachelor of Exercise Science and a Masters of Physiotherapy at Griffith University with academic excellence.

Alex has a keen interest in spinal pain as well as shoulder injuries which he frequently sees at the Woolloongabba practice. He has also had exposure to these among many other conditions working within AFL, Queensland Premier Grade Rugby Union and soccer teams at an elite level. Alex was fortunate to spend time working in a strength and conditioning gym, where he was able to advance his services and abilities from some of the leading strength and conditioning coaches in Australia. He has developed relationships with well known specialists and surgeons within the area and is one of the go to Physiotherapists in the region for Pre & Post Operative rehabilitation

Alex prides himself on his clear and precise communication and rapport building with patients. His patients will benefit from an active listener with a high proficiency of exercise prescription skills. Alex has a strong passion for individual patient care and identifies the main contributor to their pain or concern where he is then able to address this specifically and efficiently. He helps individuals to reach outstanding outcomes by optimizing patient health and by getting them back into what matters most – whether it be back on the field, a yoga class or a jog around the park. Alex aims to empower individuals and give them the tools and solutions to manage for the long term.

Outside of the clinic, Alex enjoys a round of golf, travelling, supporting the Boston Celtics in the NBA and spending time at the beach.
