Health & Beauty – Kieser opens at Torquay

Richard Wallace shows Mark Brown the cutting-edge equipment at Kieser's new Torquay centre.

Physiotherapist Richard Wallace is working one client at a time on Kieser’s mission of ‘Building a stronger Australia’.

After beginning in Switzerland 52 years ago, Kieser now has nearly 150 centres in Europe. Kieser Australia arrived in 2006, with 13 centres now operating across Melbourne, Geelong and Sydney.

A new centre opened at Torquay in November.

“We saw a need in the Torquay area for physio, rehab and therapeutic strength training with the growing and ageing population,” Richard explains.

“Kieser’s fusion of physiotherapy and strength and conditioning utilises an evidence-based, best-practice formula that sets us apart from other gyms and physio clinics. Our strength-training programs are designed and overseen by specially trained medical professionals, and are safe and specific for individual needs.

“Training at Kieser is very different to a traditional gym because of our Swiss-engineered equipment, non-intimidating environment and time-efficient programs that can be completed in 30 minutes, twice a week.

“We work with a variety of people in the local community, from sport clubs such as the Geelong Cats to local health professionals and health insurers. We’ve also developed a program with GMHBA designed to delay or prevent joint replacement surgery as well as improve post-surgical outcomes for clients with osteoarthritis.”
