The InBody 570 machine measures and analyses an individual’s body composition in terms of water, fat, protein, muscle, bone mineral and much more. Testing and printed results are obtained in less than 2 minutes providing a comprehensive breakdown of how/where you are holding weight. The scan also determines the weight of lean muscle mass in each limb to see if there is a postural imbalance to address. It reports your level of body fat and skeletal muscle mass / girth measurements so you can understand how your diet, lifestyle and training regime are influencing your overall body composition.

To help you get the most out of your session with one of our trainers, please consider which of the following options is your area of focus:
Cardiovascular fitness – For guests wanting to improve heart / lung health and efficiency, this style of session is designed to safely extend the participants ability to perform physical work. Best summarised as a “huff and puff workout”, our trainers will use a variety of training apparatus and techniques to improve your aerobic efficiency.
Movement for optimum health & ageing – With an emphasis on functional health, this style of session looks at both the muscular-skeletal system as well as the neuro-muscular system. Addressing age-related concerns, such as joint disorders, osteoporosis, balance, as well as physical strength capabilities, the focus is on integrating stability, strength, range of movement and cardio-vascular modalities.
Strength & Resistance – Through the use of traditional machine-based apparatus, free weights, and body weight exercises along with current resistance training tools such as Power Bands, Kettle Bells or suspension trainers, this style of session is all about shaping up and tightening up. Learn the latest training techniques and tools that provide the best strength-based outcomes.
Flexibility & Mobility – At Golden Door our trainers see this as one of the most under-rated components of physical health. At the foundation of much chronic pain and postural imbalance is a lack of range of movement in associated joints and/or underlying dominances within the body. The emphasis of this style of session is on alleviating stiffness, soreness, tightness and imbalances.
Water-based training & rehabilitation – Not just for the swimmers, this style of training has the unique feature of being non weight bearing as an advantage over other modalities. Taking the load of the joints frees up the rest of the body to extend itself. The inherent resistance of water to movement aids in the development of cardio-vascular fitness, strength, stability and range of movement in a supportive physical environment.
