WHAT IS VIRTUS
Virtus is a multi disciplinary performance centre designed to empower you to improve.
Our team of Holistic Performance Coaches, Sports Physiotherapist, Dietitian, Myotherapist, Yoga and Pilates Instructors are here to help you live happier and healthier lives.
HOW CAN WE HELP
We could tell you about all the plates, barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, and medicine balls that we use to help get you faster, stronger, or fitter. But everyone else already does all that. We invest our time into getting you to your goals by helping you first find your path, then we don’t just make you faster, or stronger, or fitter… We make you better. From a holistic, third person perspective we can help you manage the weakest links in your life whilst improving your strengths. Performance it’s multi faceted, and so is the service of our Performance Coaches.
Virtus Group Training
Virtus Group Training is designed to prepare you for the rigors of both Sport and Life.
If you train in VGT, you will have fun, and you will be challenged. We don’t train to see how tired we can make you (anyone can do that) We challenge you to improve the way you move, to help you create long term, sustainable behavioral change to achieve that goal that you keep telling yourself you want to achieve.
As Sports Physiotherapist, Greg’s primary role is four clear steps:
1. Find the cause of your problem, to:
2. Explain the cause of your symptoms;
3. Determine the most effective treatment/exercise, to:
4. Shorten your time to recovery.
The best medical professionals do three things well:
1. Communicate well;
2. Get the diagnosis right, every time;
3. Deliver the right treatment for the diagnosis.
You can count on the above elements in your Sports Physiotherapy service with Greg Dea. As a professional instructor in assessment, diagnostics and exercise treatment, with nearly 18 years in the industry, titled as Sports Physiotherapist by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Performance Physical Therapist by EXOS (performance service supplier to German National Football Team, Chinese Olympic Committee, and multiple professional sports teams around the world).
As part of our integrative approach to health we offer Myotherapy to assist you with your soft tissue recovery and maintanance, as well as injury management. Our Myotherapist Ashleigh specialises in deep tissue massage, dry needling, cupping and education to keep your body in the best shape possible. Myotherapy will assist you in your training by keeping your muscles working efficiently and improving your posture, but also helps switch on your parasympathetic nervous system, thus helping you return from ‘fight & flight’ mode that most of us spend our busy days stuck in, to ‘rest & digest’. Virtus is holistic and we want you to have a healthy body and mind. Ashleigh works closely with Physiotherapist Greg Dea, all the Virtus Coaches and Dietitian, Maddi Borg, making your personal health management consistent and all inclusive of your needs.
Food and Nutrition
As an Accredited Practicing Dietitian, it is Maddi’s role to help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to maintain a healthy relationship with food, so that your diet is both nourishing and enjoyable. Her goal is to encourage clients to see beyond food as simply fuel for their bodies, and re-establish the social, mental and emotional connections we have with how and what we eat. In doing so she is able to personalise a service that ensures her clients are meeting their nutritional goals, and are able to live and perform as happy, healthy humans. Maddi is here to show you how food can not only make your body feel and perform better, but how food can change the way you think and feel, and how what you think and feel influences what you eat.
Pilates offers an opportunity for improvement. Utilising this unique form of exercise, rehabilitation and movement, Brooke’s role is to help you improve your body control, strength and flexibility, whilst rectifying muscle imbalances which can develop from weakness, injury and our habits. Pilates is a gentle, safe, low impact exercise which helps to build your core strength to allow you to move efficiently and pain free.
Yoga is a moving meditation combining elements of breath, and movement. Vinyasa Yoga simply means “purposeful movement of the body, with the breath”.
Classes will include a range of slow flow, chill style postures and movements, as well as a stronger Vinyasa practice allowing you build strength and flexibility of both the mind and body. Anna aims to educate and empower you to live and feel better in your body; gaining a greater understanding of movement and the breath, keeping you balanced and free of pain.
