Fitness and rehabilitation @TheGym

Fitness and rehabilitation @TheGym

Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association has been helping people with a disability to maximise their health and fitness since we opened our first gym in Brisbane in 1985.

The benefits of exercise for people with a disability – as for everyone in the community – include increased fitness, better muscle strength, and improved coordination and balance. Exercise can also help prevent injury, decrease stress and improve overall quality of life.

The Association operates a fully accessible, inclusive fitness and rehabilitation facility @TheGym, at our Brisbane headquarters at 60 Edmondstone Road, Bowen Hills.

Our friendly, experienced staff are highly qualified Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs), registered with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) (click here to find out more about Exercise Physiology), and registered providers for private health claims and Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan referrals.
