Client Potential & Foreshadowing
Here at Vision, our client needs, goals and ambitions are many and varied. We work with children as young as 4 and some of our 'wisest' clients well into their 90s! During our MODIFIED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAM (see previous post for program description) we filmed one participant engaging in the game based exercise to encourage, leg power, co-ordination, dynamic balance and throwing skill set development. During this time we concurrently filmed (purely by accident) a VISION SPORTS SCIENCE Athlete undertaking speed/ power development in their consultation. It is truly amazing to see this moment of foreshadowing and the potential in all of our clients regardless of their age! ... See MoreSee Less
Welcome back to 2018! 🌻😄🌈
It’s half way through January and whilst some hit the New Years’ resolutions hard on Jan 1, others are waiting to return from Summer holidays. Some may have already given up on their well-intended lifestyle changes… but why? Often it’s put down to a lack of ‘willpower’ - which, if depending on entirely to maintain changes, will run out.
Here’s some points to consider if heading down the self improvement path in 2018:
1. 12 month or ‘forever’ plans are daunting and often become overwhelming. Set small goals - aim to change or implement something new for a week, or a month.
2. Be specific - ‘Eat Healthy’ is a vague goal, but ‘Packing lunch for work 4 days a week’ may be more realistic.
3. Make sure the change you want to make reflects your values, and that it is something you really want to change. Genuinely wanting to improve your fitness so you can have more energy for the kids is a much better reason to start regular exercise, than because some presenter on The Morning Show told you you should be exercising.
4. Find some accountability – enlist the help of a friend or a health professional. Vocalising your intentions for change, motivations to change and checking in with someone regularly can help keep you on track.
5. Celebrate progress - Breakdown the goal into smaller milestones and give yourself a pat on the back when you reach them…. Or treat yourself to an outing, a new piece of clothing, a book etc.
6. Set new goals and challenges throughout the year. If something didn’t work out, find something else to reach for or change your original approach. You don’t have to wait for January 1 to roll around again!
7. Tackle one thing at a time – The day you return to work after holidays and send the kids back to school (and start after hours activities) is probably not ideal to start your new nutrition and fitness regime. Consider the best time for you – and no, it does not have to be a Monday. ... See MoreSee Less

Modified Physical Activity Exercise Program
Vision is proud to launch the Modified Physical Activity (MPA) program which has been created to provide an opportunity for movement and exercise support for children with an impairment or delay or a child that finds it difficult to exercise or play sport with their peers. The MPA program provides a group movement opportunity, delivered by accredited exercise physiologists, to assist in fine & gross motor skills development, coordination, functional capacity and movement confidence by utilising game-based exercises. Where many of the current movement opportunities are individually orientated and isolated tasks that rely heavily on autonomy to achieve progress, the MPA program creates a fun environment for children to participate which assists developmental and health parameters simultaneously. The program comprises of one 40 minute session each week for the school term and is targeted at children between ages 3 and 15 years. We are looking for our final few participants for our Term 1 program! For more information or bookings please contact our reception team for more information on this exciting opportunity (07) 46 383 777. ... See MoreSee Less
