The Fit Lab is Toowoomba’s premier Fitness Centre, now encompassing a High Performance and Rehabilitation Unit. Featuring bespoke facilities, exercise physiology, rehabilitation, high-performance training, a variety of fitness classes and personal training.

Dedicated to providing the community the best mix of expertise for their health and fitness services, we have employed multiple full time Accredited Exercise Physiologists, providing much needed support to the local community, Hospitals and Medical practitioners to enable the delivery of exercise and lifestyle modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injury.

In addition, we have partnered with a group of Toowoomba’s leading physical and mental health professionals, providing a simpler process and central point of contact for patients.

The Unit is a standalone addition to The Fit Lab Health and Fitness Centre. We have taken over the old Mothers World site and fitted it out with the latest in cutting edge technology and testing equipment, all in a completely private centre with undercover parking and wheel chair friendly access.

We provide services for Medicare, Department of Veterans Affairs, Private Health, WorkCover and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) referrals.

A TAILORED APPROACH FOR BETTER PATIENT OUTCOMES

The aim of the High Performance and Rehabilitation Unit is to provide long term health solutions for patients. By combining a range of clinical professions under one umbrella and partnering together, our health professionals are able to coordinate in a tailored approach to the individual needs of the client.

For example, acute injury patients can progress from the physiotherapist to the exercise physiologists and finally to the gym as their rehabilitation progresses.

The multi-disciplinary team approach offers more support for better patient outcomes.

PROFESSIONAL AND WELL-EQUIPPED

All of our health professionals are highly qualified, professionally accredited and industry experienced. We pride ourselves on evidence based approaches and use the latest technology to assess and treat clients where appropriate.

PATIENT EDUCATION AND EMPOWERMENT

Education and empowerment is a core value of The Fit Lab and shared by our Allied Health partners. Our members know that client education increases compliance and leads to more long-term behaviour change.

We always aim to empower clients to self-manage because we want them to have an understanding of their body and their conditions, as well as a sense of hope for the future.

SIMPLICITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Many patients are already overwhelmed by the challenges of multiple chronic conditions or of adjusting to life with an illness or injury. By working with a team of allied health partners, The Fit Lab provide a simpler process and central point of contact for your patients.

A coordinated approach between health professionals can provide not only improved communication and patient care, but also greater accountability for patients as they work with a number of practitioners on different aspects of their health.
