FirstIn Physio is proud to support many local athletes in the Burdekin region. We work closely with the local Rugby and touch football clubs, as well as the Ayr and Home Hill swim schools and the local Dance schools. The beginning of each year is always busy with Musculoskeletal Screenings and Injury Prevention Programs for our younger athletes, always important as they grow and adapt to their training loads.
Our resident Exercise Physiologist Thomas Wendt has many athletes of all ages and sports on his books for strength and conditioning programs, which run year-round. Thomas has a wealth of knowledge and experience in getting athletes to achieve their optimal potential through supervised and controlled workouts. He has worked with dancers, swimmers, track athletes, triathletes, rugby players and CrossFit athletes and seen some amazing developments and achievements in his athletes throughout the years.
The FirstIn Physio Run Group offers a guided “learn to run” program, coached by Thomas and closely supervised by our resident Physios and Ironman athletes, Kristy and Patrick Shannon. This is the perfect program for complete beginners through to injured runners who are wanting a safe way to progress back into their run training, or who may have had some time away from the sport. The program runs annually and is limited in numbers due to its popularity; to find out more about this wonderful group please call the clinic.
In 2014, FirstIn Physio is proud to be starting a formal relationship with the Burdekin Catholic High School High Performance Program. This program fosters young athletes who show promise in their chosen sports through guided training, coaching, education and development. We look forward to being a part of this fantastic program and seeing our younger athletes achieve their dreams.
