Improve your function and achieve your goals
At AXM Exercise Physiology we specialise in prescribing exercise to help people living with a disability achieve their goals and live their best life. Our NDIS exercise physiology programs are tailored to your individual capacity, circumstances and the goals and outcomes you want to achieve. We have experience treating a wide range of disabilities and can individualise your therapy to your disability and the challenges that you face.
How can exercise physiology help?
We like to think of the benefits of exercise physiology coming in two different forms. First we have the direct benefits of exercise. These are the benefits that happen to you on a cellular level (physical and psychological), including:
- Improved physical function
- General health improvement
- Weight loss and management
- Management or reduction in pain levels
- Enhanced fitness levels, strength and mobility
- Better mental health management
- Improved balance
- Better sleep
The direct benefits then lead to a number of indirect (social) benefits. These indirect benefits enhance the way you live your life, including:
- Increased confidence and self-efficacy
- Healthier lifestyle habits
- Better able to find/maintain employment
- Increased social engagement
- Development of exercise regime
- Better behaviour management
- Exercise provides people living with disability a pathway to better independence, higher everyday function and enhanced quality of life through both direct and indirect benefits.
Whatever you need
We understand that exercise is different for everyone depending on your current capacity, experience and fitness levels. We find ways to help you access the benefits of exercise through versatile exercise options and programming. You can work 1:1 with us in our space or we can come to a location of your choice with our mobile service. With these flexible options we are able to support you in achieving outcomes and empower you to do the things in life that you want to do.
A Space suitable for all
Our boutique studio is filled with a range of exercise equipment that is suitable for anyone living with a disability. Combining commercial-grade exercise equipment with a private space, allows us to tailor your exercise physiology experience to be truly comfortable, personalised and fun.
Our location in the central Canberra suburb of Bruce, is highly accessible with easy parking available and wheelchair access. We have designed our studio to be a private and safe space that helps remove the anxiety that regular gyms can often cause. We have an open floor plan that minimises hazards and allows us to maximise the space for exercise. Our goal is to make your exercise physiology experience as comforting, enjoyable and accommodating as possible.
If you are unsure or have any questions give us a call on (02) 6152 9151 or send us an email and one our exercise physiologists will be happy to chat and see if we are the right fit for you.
Jack was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, leaving him with reduced muscle strength, balance and mobility.
Jack received funding from the NDIS that meant he could access exercise physiology through his plan.
Jack contacted AXM Exercise Physiology over the phone and made a booking at our clinic in Bruce.
Jack attended his initial consultation and discussed with his exercise physiologist how his condition affected him, discussed his goals and underwent a physical assessment of his strength, balance and mobility.
Jack now sees an exercise physiologist weekly to improve his strength, balance and mobility as well as working towards his goals.
