The Hampshire Wellbeing Centre offers both sports and exercise therapy in the Wellbeing Gym, with both therapies aimed at helping members of the general public as well as athletes.
Tackle a niggling pain and get back to full fitness with a session from one of our Sports Therapists, or get active on a regular basis with our Physio Led Pilates, Active Ageing and Joint Pain exercise classes.
The Hampshire Wellbeing Centre plays host to a wide range of exercise classes which cater to various needs and suit all ages. The centre's gym facilities can also be used by clients and visitors during our open hours sessions.
The class timings indicated below are a rough guide only with other sessions also available upon request, to enquire about a class time to suit you, please contact the Hampshire Wellbeing Centre team.
Pilates is a form of low impact, mat based exercise targeted to increase mobility and activate and improve the endurance of the muscles around the lower back, hips and abdomen. Pilates has been found to be effective in the prevention and management of conditions such as back pain and arthritis.
Our classes are led by one of our highly experienced, APPI-certified, specialist Physiotherapists, who will carry out a free 15 minute assessment before your first class to ensure that class content is appropriate and adapted to your specific requirements.
Just because someone is aging, it doesn’t mean that they can’t enjoy a challenging exercise class or achieve fitness goals. However, regardless of your level of fitness there are a number of chronic diseases that you are more at risk of as you age, including osteoporosis, arthritis and increased blood pressure, and exercise can help to prevent these in addition to maintaining muscle strength, mobility and balance.
Our exercise classes at the Hampshire Wellbeing centre are specifically tailored to participants’ needs and are lead by a qualified therapist.
We find the sessions friendly and good fun; Anna is a caring leader who adapts the exercises to suit individual needs and abilities. There is a broad variety of exercises with a varied routine and it is a relaxed session with no specialist clothing required." (Sue and David Daw,Sue and David Daw, Active Ageing

This class is held in a friendly atmosphere and despite being a class you get individual attention. The exercises really help my joint stay mobile and help my joint pain.Cherry Stones, Joint Pain

Sports Therapy is a healthcare profession that involves prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of function, whether that be back to work or sport specific fitness, regardless of your age and ability, through hands-on treatment and exercise. Sports Therapists also have knowledge in tailoring treatment and exercise prescription for patients with a variety of health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and weight gain.
Our Sports Therapist can use a range of techniques including:
They will assess each individual and implement the appropriate strategies where necessary to maintain and maximise movement to relieve aches and pains and improve your quality of life, and are able to advise alternative action if required.
Our resident sports therapists have extensive experience in treating elite athletes as well as members of the general public.
Although primarily targeted at those who participate in sports, anybody suffering aches and pains from activities such as prolonged desk sitting and driving can also benefit greatly from a sports massage.

Hi Anna,Andrew Sivanesan, Sports Therapy
Just wanted to let you know that your treatment and advice has helped me massively. My back feels so much better, I’m using my leg muscles far more effectively to support my back when lifting and today I surpassed my previous squat weight record (using far better form and technique than before)!
I started having Sports Therapy treatment from Anna in March 2018 to complement physiotherapy treatment on my lower back.Chris Birdsall, Sports Therapy
Anna is a highly skilled practitioner and has made a major contribution to my recovery as well as the ongoing management of my lower back condition which cannot be operated upon.
Anna’s motivational skills have also helped enormously when my spirits were down during periods when my recovery was slow and challenging.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Anna for Sports Therapy treatment.
