The Brain x Body Fitness Studio provides state-of-the-art equipment and floor classes such as yoga, boxing and dance to benefit members at every fitness level.
Recline Forma – The wide walk through and comfortable, adjustable seat make the recline forma an ideal way for clients suffering back pain or limited mobility to access cardio exercise.
Excite Top – The excite top is undertaken in a seated position
while exercising the muscles of the upper body and cardiovascular
system. This is an ideal warm up option for those unable to cycle
or walk due to injuries, weakness or limited mobility.
Flexibility Posterior – This device provides a gentle and progressive stretch of the glute and hamstring muscles. This device is user friendly and provides an effective stretch for those unable to get up and down off the floor.
Excite Vario – The Excite Vario provides a low impact, cardiovascular
workout through a range of movement trajectories. The machine adapts
to the individual stride length and movement patterns. Users have the
option to incorporate both arms and legs to create a whole body
Jog Forma – The jog forma is a high quality treadmill designed with a wide frame and walking surface to maximise safety for all users. The LED screen allows you to track every aspect of your exercise including heart rate, speed and distance.
Dual Adjustable Pulley – The dual adjustable pulley provides a full
body strength workout. The height and handles of the pulley can
be easily adjusted to provide upper body, lower body and core
Kinesis One – The Kinesis one allows users to work through a free, natural range of movement to improve functional skills and strength. The ergonomic handles are always ready for use so no prior settings or adjustments are required.
in the studio mid 2020 and free to use for all BBFS members.
The Isodynamic Reviver works by moving the body in a slow,
wave like motion while tilted at a specific angle to gravity.
This device activates many muscles across the body, firing
automatic signals to the brain which may not have been activated
for some time due to age, damage or disability. This process induces neuroplasticity and strengthens the neural system. The anecdotal evidence from the pilot clinic in Sydney Australia demonstrates specific and measurable benefits to patients across a range of conditions including Parksinon’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Stoke, Cerebal Palsy and balance impairments.
MOTOmed – The MOTOmed was developed for those with limited mobility and can be undertaken in a wheelchair or from a standard chair. The motor driven movement is beneficial for improving muscle tone, loosening stiff muscles, increasing blood circulation and joint flexibility.
The MOTOmed allows for an easy transition from passive to active training.
Studies have found the MOTOmed beneficial conditions such as Multiple sclerosis, Stroke, Parkinson’s, brain injuries, orthopedics, paraplegia and muscular disorders.
OrbIT system – The studio has three OrBIT systems designed for targeted, cognitive training. The gaming system is a fun, stand-alone computer gaming system featuring an easy-to-use controller for clients with hand impairments. Developed by Flinders University, the OrBIT system will undergo a three year study at BBFS to measure its impact on delaying dementia onset for those with Parkinson’s. The OrBIT system will be available for all members to use.
