Clinical Conditioning

Clinical Conditioning

At Performance Medicine we know that exercise is medicine.  This is why we have created clinical conditioning classes use functional strength training and the principles of pilates to help you to find your inner strength. Clinical Conditioning finds its origins in traditional pilates combined with the diagnostic science of Physiotherapy. 

What is Clinical Conditioning?

Delivered by qualified physiotherapists, our Southbank studio provides a home for premier clinical conditioning classes in central Melbourne. Our programs draw on a combination of matwork pilates and equipment-based pilates in our custom built studio. Equipped with reformers, trapeze table, thoracic barrel and balance equipment, we have the facilities to help you reach your goals through our various classes.

Research has shown that clinical conditioning is an effective way to improve the control and strength of the major joints in the body. It is an excellent injury rehabilitation tool and also a fun and effective way to enhance the body’s deep postural muscle strength and maintain fitness.


If you have a group of three or four friends who would like to participate in pilates classes we can arrange your own dedicated class time. Please call our client experience team to arrange a class time to suit you and your friends!

The Clinical Conditioning classes are designed for those:

  • Currently experiencing an injury
  • Experiencing a recurring injury or have a complex history
  • Post surgical patients
  • Who require increased supervision
  • Completing rehabilitation and ensure injury prevention programs

To tailor your program, ensure safety and that you are achieving your goals, your therapist will conduct an initial profile.

  • Initial Conditioning Profile (45 mins)

Your profiling will include a full body assessment, discussion about your goals and the use of real time ultrasound (if appropriate for you).

Your assessing therapist may advise you to commence a series of 1:1 sessions prior to (or in conjunction with) a group class to ensure you complete your foundations solidly.
