As a health and fitness professional with Prestige Lifestyles, Sarah Do Rozario is committed to health, fitness, and happiness.
Pilates is about feeling fit and healthy. Agility Physiotherapy & Pilates takes feeling fit and healthy that much further. Pilates focuses on core strengthening through postural stability exercises to engage the body muscles. German Joseph Pilates first developed the physical fitness system during the early 1900s, believing mental and physical health were interconnected. With a father as a prize-winning gymnast and a mother for a naturopath, Joseph delved into both Eastern and Western health philosophies and exercises, developing a workout plan and system focusing on strength of the mind and body. Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance throughout the body. The fitness system puts emphasis on body alignment, breathing, developing a strong core to improve coordination and balance. Concentration, Control, Centre, Flow, Precision and Breathing are the six principles of Pilates. Agility excels in this and adds Rehabilitation to the mix.
Offering an individualised approach that looks at maintaining fitness and health, a personal plan is created to cover any array of abilities and goals. These look at correcting muscle imbalances, reduce back pain, strengthen joints and rehabilitate injuries. Matwork courses, the Reformer Pilates, the Trapeze table and Wunder Chair resistance exercise machine, all the body muscles are engaged for stretching and strengthening with each apparatus allowing for different types of exercises.
Business owner and an expert in the field with more than 25 years experience in physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy and pilates training, Jenny Birckel oversees these personal Pilates experiences. Personal plans are designed for recovering from illnesses to those with muscular or postural weaknesses and challenges, pregnant ladies, training for competitive sports from dancing to Ironman, as well as children seriously training in athletics and sports.

These personal plans achieve optimal health and fitness with a safe and straightforward approach to exercise.
Agility’s team of physiotherapists and physiologists are trained in Clinical Pilates through the Pilates Institute of Queensland. They combine traditional Pilates methods with current industry knowledge and scientific research for effective, well-rounded training. With such a personal approach, an initial assessment is followed with the creation of an individual program and continual reassessments to maintain consistent and improvement. “What it really comes down to at Agility, “Jenny says, ”is that the physiotherapists and exercise physiologists aim to empower people to cope better with their lives. This is whether simply getting out of bed in the morning, or training for the Kokoda Trail.”
