Weight Lifting And Resistance Training

Weight Lifting and Resistance Training

Principle Four Osteopathy Practitioners have many clients attend the practice for assessment of their weight lifting technique and treatment of injuries.  Both of our clinics have weight lifting equipment that allows our practitioners to assess your technique and provide coaching for improved technique.  This also allows us to use this equipment as part of your rehabilitation process.

Many people regular undertake weight training that involves resistance based exercises that can be both body weight exercises, machine based exercises, functional movement exercises and free weight exercises.  Within the Melbourne City CBD and Melbourne Docklands area there are many different types of large scale gyms such as Fitness First, Virgin Active, small boutique personal training studios, outdoor bootcamp training and 24 hour fitness gyms for people who both live and work in Melbourne City CBD and Melbourne Docklands area.
