We strive to strengthen the Hobart community with our integrated physiotherapy and strength & conditioning programs at Kieser Hobart.
Our focus at Kieser Hobart is on functional improvement irrespective of pursuits, age or condition. Our Kieser Hobart facility does not have the traditional fitness environment. At Kieser Hobart, we believe our clients should be able to train in a clean, bright, uncluttered space, free of any distractions so the focus can be solely upon strength training and rehabilitation. This is why our Hobart strength & conditioning has no music, no mirrors and no distractions. We believe this creates a non-intimidating fitness centre that welcomes clients from all levels of physical ability.

Our focus at Kieser Hobart is on functional improvement irrespective of pursuits, age or condition. All Kieser Hobart clients begin their journey with an initial consultation with one of our Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists, who will prepare a comprehensive physiotherapy treatment plan to reduce any muscle aches and joint pains and start the process of reconditioning. After the initial physiotherapy treatment phase they will be introduced to one of our Hobart Exercise Scientists who will develop a customised training program.
