The O2 Active Difference – About our Perth NDIS Services
There’s a reason why we’ve been around for over 20 years and get most of our work through word of mouth. Here’s why our Perth NDIS clients choose to work with us.
We love what we do
For O2 Active’s inspiring team of exercise physiologists, movement and healthy lifestyles have impacted who we’ve become as people and professionals. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to move better, feel good, and find community through exercise. Part of our role as AEPs is to be fun and positive role models for our participants.
We make exercise fun
Exercise needs to be enjoyable for it to best help you reach and maintain your goals. With our team’s diverse training and qualifications, we can find an activity you like. We aim to match you with an AEP who shares your interests, helping you stay motivated.
Some of the activities we offer include:
- Strength and conditioning
- Sport and recreation activities
- Posture correction
- Capacity building and everyday living
- Whole person approach
Exercise is about more than physical function – it can enhance every aspect of your life. We use exercise, movement, and stillness to help you better respond to your feelings and develop a growth mindset. This helps with confidence, team skills, resilience, persistence, and creativity, as well as creating lasting friendships. If we think you could benefit, we’ll also refer you to other trusted allied health professionals (with your consent).
We are a registered NDIS provider
Perth NDIS exercise physiology with O2 Active – Your pathway with us
Wondering what it looks like to start working with us? Here’s what to expect.
1. YOUR FIRST VISIT
The focus of this visit is getting to know you. We’ll take the time to understand your needs and goals and review your physical function. Your support people are welcome to join your session. Armed with this information, we’ll write your initial report and start developing suitable support strategies.
2. EXERCISE THERAPY
Next, we start working towards your goals with a personalised program that considers your physical ability, lifestyle and preferences. We’ll see you at the place that best meets your needs, such as your home, school, gym, pool, park or our Mosman Park clinic. Your program will include a range of exercises, and we’ll work alongside you to ensure you can complete your exercises safely and effectively.
3. REVIEW AND PROGRESSION
As you make headway towards your goals, it’s important to update your plan. We’ll modify your program based on your feedback and the changes we find on assessment. We’ll continue to provide lifestyle advice and ongoing support that reflects your progress.
4. LONG TERM MANAGEMENT
As your life changes, so do your goals. We’ll work with you to optimise your health and wellbeing to match your current lifestyle. We’ll teach you ways to make exercise an enjoyable part of everyday life to support your physical, mental and social wellbeing. If you’d like to increase your community participation, we offer group exercise classes for NDIS participants as part of a maintenance program.
More about NDIS exercise physiology
What is an Exercise Physiologist?
Exercise physiologists are university trained allied health professionals who use individually tailored exercise programs to help you achieve your goals and enhance your health. Our experienced exercise physiologists will conduct an assessment and design physical activity recommendations based on your goals, health history, and current level of function.
We’ll help you put these in place safely and effectively by encouraging you to work hard, but never forcing you to overextend yourself. We’ll also teach your supports to help with your program if needed.
At O2 Active, we’re passionate about helping you move better, feel good, and participate in the activities you enjoy. We’re NDIS registered and work with NDIS participants throughout Perth and surrounding regions.
