Selwyn Strength & Wellness Studio

Coming Soon!

Selwyn Strength & Wellness Studio

Having searched worldwide for age-friendly equipment, our Selwyn Strength and Wellness Studio is furnished with the most advanced exercise equipment technology available today. Finnish company HUR has developed this equipment over 30 years close cooperation with leading researchers in biomechanics and exercise physiology. The computerised air pressure equipment is designed to meet the needs of rehabilitation, senior exercise and inclusive wellness users.

HUR equipment is designed to address our individuality as everyone’s strength and abilities vary. We set the resistance at zero load, to accommodate the weakest users, and then increase by 100g increments.  This means that loads can be set to your exact needs for each and every training session. This results in increased safety and faster progress.

Next steps

We will then phone you to learn about your specific needs and goals and arrange an appointment for you to come and visit the studio. Our trained Physio or Exercise Physiologist will assess your strength and set up the equipment to meet your personal requirements (both physical and confidence).

Once set up with your personal requirements, the HUR SmartTouch equipment will enable you to exercise independently. The machines are easy to access and the loads are set up automatically. The touch screen display will provide you with instructions, goals and feedback on your progress. This will give you an immediate sense of achievement.

Our Selwyn Strength & Wellness Studio is not a gym where you just pop in whenever you like. You make an appointment to use the studio at a time of day, and day of the week that works for you. We can guarantee that there will never be more than six guests using the studio at any given time.

This intimate studio is a great way to build up your strength, improve your wellness and meet other people.

At the end of your session, you are welcome to pop in to the Selwyn Heights café for tea or coffee and a nibble. It's reasonably priced and there is a good variety of food. This is a café for Selwyn Heights residents, so we do ask that you respect this space, our residents and dress appropriately as you have access due to the goodwill of our residents.
