Studio Gym is an exercise system that focuses on building strength without bulk, improving flexibility and helping to prevent injury. Studio Gym can help with back and neck pain as you gain control over small muscles which help to stabilise your spine, therefore, decreasing the load on the injured areas. Stretching tight areas and strengthening weak muscles help to align your body. This helps with injury prevention.  There is emphasis is on strengthening the abdominals, improving posture, stabilising and lengthening the spine, improving balance and overall strength. Studio Gym is taught by a physiotherapist with specific training in this area. It focuses on pain relief and regaining normal body flexibility and strength.
