About MedGym Local

Medgym Local is a joint venture between MedPlaza and Fitness Local.

We recognise the importance of ongoing exercise as we age to ensure adequate fitness and strength for you to do the things you want to do.

All programs are supervised by an exercise physiologist based on latest clinical research into exercise therapy with particular emphasis on chronic medical conditions. Our aim is for you to embrace exercise to be fitter, more stable, and reduce pain to live longer and stronger!

We provide a safe environment for exercise for those who would not normally attend a gym or find gyms intimidating. To our knowledge we are the first such 'clinical' gym in Sydney.

Meet our principle Exercise Physiologist

An exercise physiologist is a university qualified allied health professional who specialises in using exercise and lifestyle modification as treatment for a wide range of chronic conditions and injuries. Exercise physiologists use our body's adaptive responses to movement and exercise to manage, restore function and prevent the progression of an illness.
