FAQ

Feel free to get in touch if need more information.

Why should I attend an RTR workshop?

  1. Our workshops aim to provide you with a current snapshot of the evidence base for exercise therapy. Each month we are avidly updating our content based on our research, clinical practice and discussions with experienced colleagues. We also frame exercise therapy within the biopsychosocial framework.

  2. You will leave our workshops with a concise 'take home message'. Pilates and strength training need not be complex, just effective.

  3. We love exercise! We love to talk all things exercise. Exercise is the best. So on our workshops don't just show you an exercise, we delve into it. We not only discuss the evidence and research behind an exercise we also explore the various ways to modify, progress, regress, coach, facilitate an exercise.


Who can attend RTR workshops?

All workshops offered by RTR can open to any health or fitness professional. This includes physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, exercises scientists, osteopaths, myotherapists, sports scientists, strength and conditioning coaches and personal trainers. Material covered is pitched at the level of a health professional so having a sound knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and pathophysiology will assist the learning process.

Students and new graduates are also welcome.


I am new to Pilates and/or Strength & Conditioning. Can I attend a workshop?

Of course! Our workshops are designed to provide you with the ideal introduction and guiding you through the most clinically relevant information. Our aim is to have you leaving with a clear understanding of how to apply the principles in an easy, effective manner. 

I have done previous Pilates and/or S&C workshops before. What will I get out of attending an RTR workshop?

Attending CPD events can be expensive, so we understand you want to ensure your investment provides dividends. Over the years we have had many clinicians with prior experience attend our workshops and enjoy the refreshing approach to their current repertoire as well as picking up some useful variations, clinical reasoning and program design concepts. However, feel free to get in touch with us if you would like to discuss further.


What kind of Pilates exercises are covered in the workshops?

Our workshops cover a variety of both matwork and equipment exercises. The equipment used include  the Reformer,  Trapeze Table, Wunda Chair and small equipment such as Swiss Balls and other bits and pieces commonly used in Pilates.


What kind of Strength & Conditioning exercises are covered in the workshops?

Our workshops cover exercises that use common strength training equipment such as barbells, dumbbell, power bands and kettlebell. We aim to discuss a range of options for each movement to suit the different type of clinics our attendees work in. Don't have a squat rack in your clinic - not a problem, we'll go through many other effective options with you.


Are the workshops more theoretical or practical?

At RTR we like to move. There is only so much sitting around that we can tolerate during a workshop. So we have designed workshops that keep you moving too. All our workshops are at least 70% practical, giving you the opportunity to learn the content. We aim to keep the theory during the workshop to the most important information and we'll provide you with some pre-reading beforehand.


Will I receive a certification after attending an RTR workshop?

At the conclusion of the workshop you'll receive a fancy certificate of attendance for your CPD portfolio. 

Can RTR provide a workshop specifically for my clinic?

Of course. Contact us to discuss your team's specific training needs and we can arrange bespoke workshops that can be held at your clinic.
