Get back Training earlier with our AlterG Recovery Program
Step 1: Assess Stage of Recovery and Future Training Goals
We will talk through with you where you are currently at with your injury or problem and where you want to be with your training in the future. You may be returning from surgery, recovering from an injury that has required you to rest or looking to get into running but feel your body isn’t quite ready for it yet.
Step 2: Design walking or running recovery Program
We then design your program. Programs usually go from 2 to 10 weeks depending on the your particular circumstances and involves starting you off at significantly reduced gravity loads and speeds and then gradually increasing the loads as you heal.
Step 3: Get Back training on Adelaide’s only Commercial AlterG.
By getting you up and running (or walking) we can reduce the loss of specific fitness. As you are running at reduced body weight, the impact or load on the injured structure is greatly reduced but you can maintain a level of cardio vascular fitness, not possible before.
