Discover fitness elevated at Kieser Norwood

Kieser Norwood isn't your typical gym – it's a sanctuary redefining the fitness experience.

Say goodbye to the typical mirrored gym walls; instead, imagine floor-to-ceiling windows offering breathtaking views of the Mount Lofty Ranges and Adelaide skyline, setting a tone of relaxation rarely found in traditional fitness spots.

Kieser stands out not just for its aesthetics but for its revolutionary fitness approach. Clinic Leader and Senior Physiotherapist, Sandan Inturrisi, introduces us to “medical strength training.” It’s a blend of physiotherapy, exercise physiology, and strength training, designed to be safer and more precise than the usual gym routines.

In Inturrisi’s words, “It might feel slower if you’re used to other gyms.” But that deliberate pace serves a crucial purpose – reducing momentum for precision and muscle isolation, minimising the risk of injury. The result? Achieving the same workout intensity with less weight, prioritising safety in your fitness journey.

The Kieser Method redefines workouts with “time under load,” swapping endless repetitions for a focused two minutes on each piece of equipment. The entire workout is condensed to just half an hour, maintaining effectiveness by isolating muscles and adjusting equipment resistance in a controlled setting.

The equipment lineup at Kieser Norwood is diverse, from familiar chest presses to specialised tools like the Cervical Extensor and Lumbar Extensor, targeting specific muscles. The clinic sprawls over nearly 500 square meters, including eight physiotherapist consulting rooms and a designated space for small-group classes addressing various pathologies like diabetes and osteoporosis.

Community response has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to Kieser Norwood’s expansion. Inturrisi shares, “The community, especially the apartments above us, has responded well. We started with seven staff, and by year-end, we’ll have 16, all contributing to our mission to make Australia stronger.”

How is Kieser different?

The origins of Kieser extend back to 1966 in Switzerland when founder Werner Kieser opened the first Kieser centre. When it began, Kieser was pioneering – it was one of the first companies to recognise the health benefits of strength training.

More than 50 years later, Kieser has remained faithful to its concept and continues to be ahead of the curve. Everything done at Kieser is deeply rooted in scientific research. Combining a hands-on physiotherapy approach with personalised, targeted strength training under the expert guidance of exercise scientists. Swiss engineered equipment has been designed to isolate specific muscles for more effective training and safety. The technique brings strength to health, and health to strength. The focus at Kieser is on functional improvement irrespective of your age, your condition or the activity you love.
