Introducing Vibrant Ryan Poppi...
Ryan had ankle surgery in July 2017 and was referred to bounceREHAB by ankle Specialist, Dr Jeff Ling for post operative Physiotherapy with Matthew in August. In order to get strength & mobility back into his ankle again, Ryan needed to start an exercise program.
This was daunting for Ryan as he had never felt relaxed in any gym he had been to before & knew this was outside his comfort zone. Ryan now attends bounceREHAB daily in Pilates, Barre & Wolf Pack and has referred many of his friends & colleagues to bounce which we are truly grateful for.
Ryan’s vivacious energy & zest for life is prominent each time he walks through the bounce door and his motivational energy does not go unnoticed by anyone lucky enough to be in class with him. Thanks so much for being with us Ryan!
I first met Samantha 4 years ago when She came into bounceREHAB for massage due to lower back & sciatica pain. I saw Samantha every month & recommended she begin Pilates to strengthen core muscles and in turn relief from pain. It took some convincing but is now not only having monthly massages, she’s also doing Pilates on a regular basis.
Once hooked she talked her husband Marcus into the classes and is now a regular and actually attends more classes than she does. Marcus is also a Wolf Pack member and it is due to Marcus that we have Wolf Pack Home Brew that is enjoyed by the boys after every Wolf Pack class!! Cheers Marcus!
Because Christmas is a time for family I wanted to share this special family with all of you and let them know they are appreciated and are very special to us and love that they are part of our bounceFAMILY.
Thanks for all those who helped support the Glen Lorne Orphanage in Zimbabwe on Sunday.
The day was all about giving and bounceREHAB was successfully booked out.
We still have our raffle which will be drawn Tomorrow, so there is still time to get in on the cause. Please help buy food for these desperate children.

Remember that time the CEO of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, Cris Massis and the Vice President of the Japanese Physical Therapy Association, Yasushi Uchiyama, PT, PhD came to visit us at bounceREHAB.
They came back last week to see how we have been developing our successful multidisciplinary clinic through innovation and our amazing local community. It was a genuine honour!
Thank you to everyone we consider part of the bounceFAMILY for attending our classes, working with us, and helping us to rise to the top of the medical community. We are so honoured to share what a wellness approach looks like as a business and how Physiotherapy drives a wholistic approach to health and well-being.
Jo Davey is one of our most lovely patients and has been coming to bounce now for 2 years. Jo has been seeing Paul for Physiotherapy since 2015 when she had a knee reconstruction.
All credit goes to Paul’s skills and his homework as Jo is now attending Pilates at bounceREHAB on a regular basis doing 3 - 4 classes per week.
Unbeknownst to Joe, all participants notice Jo in the classes, as we’ve heard others say she is a real inspiration and a true motivator! Jo is always one of the first to like & comment on our posts on facebook.
We all really look forward to her visits to bounce as she always brings her positive vibe and is always wearing a smile.

WeWork Halloween Best Dressed goes to?
Last Month bounceREHAB made their presence felt at the local WeWork Halloween dress up party. And what could be more Halloween than dressing up as the 'Baywatch' crew? The Hoff would be proud!
It was a terrific night and was great to rub shoulders with everyone attending. And the winner of the WeWork best dressed for the evening went to...Yes you got it, bounceREHAB Baywatch!

She will be back to co-ordinate her Nutrition side of the very successful Weight Loss Challenges with Paul Dardagan on the fitness side.

They say that they are killing it!
bounceREHAB is open

Myra was a runner until the sharp pain in her hips, lower back and her constant headaches became unbearable and she could no longer run.
In 2014, Myra visited Paul at bounceREHAB for 4 weeks of intensive physiotherapy. Paul gave her homework and suggested Pilates to strengthen her lower back. Myra is now pain free, has reached her goal weight and is "now officially a Pilates Addict" We love seeing Myra's warming smile and look forward to her daily visits.
Myra has a heart of gold and her positive energy is contagious from the moment she walks in.

I first met the lovely Andrew three years ago as he had come to bounceREHAB for Physiotherapy and Remedial Massage for his lower back and hips. Andrew was in so much pain with limited movement due to his job which involved carting around meat carcasses over his shoulders all day.
Because of Physiotherapy, Massage and Pilates classes, Andrew has avoided major surgery and drastically reduced the pain he was in. Determined to remain pain free, he is our first Platinum Member and is now doing Pilates, Stretch and Barre classes twice a day. He has said that all three have been vital in his recovery and also increased his flexibility and strength.
Now Andrew has a new lease on life. He has quit his old job and now has sights on becoming an Uber Driver. Certainly a lot less pressure on the back and hips. With the extra time and energy, Andrew has been enjoying a quality of life which gives him more time with his two beautiful girls especially on fathers day. He’s an inspiration!
Join our physio Matt Craig on Saturdays @ 2.30pm when he hosts a tough rock Pilates Reformer class. This isn't one for the girls so man up and find out if you are tough enough.
THEN! At 3.15pm, reward your efforts with a hard earned Wolfpack/Coopers Pale Ale and just chill with "The pack". We now have 20L kegs of Wolfpack Pale Ale (5.7%) on tap made by Fellow wolfpack member Marcus Peterson.
Health fund rebates apply.
Corrine Joins the Team @ bounce
Corrine fell in love with the Pilates method over 7 years ago and after the birth of her second child decided to take time out from the corporate world of media and advertising to pursue her dream of studying Pilates full time.
As a graduate of Polestar Pilates, she is very passionate about the power to heal through movement.
Corrine is taking Power Mat Pilates, Pilates Reformer and bounceSTRETCH classes @ both 36 and 183 Harris Street locations.
At bounceREHAB we recognise that balance is key to maintaining sustainable health and wellness, and while we love to work hard in a reformer class we know that our bodies also need to spend time stretching and releasing.
Our signature bounceSTRETCH sessions are designed to target tight, stressed bodies, providing the opportunity to work restoratively while stretching and releasing. Props such as foam rollers and spiky balls will be used at times to aid in myofascial release and give a juicy deep tissue massage.
Beginning August 22nd
Tuesdays 11am & 5pm, & Thursdays 11am
Held at bounceMINDBODY @ 36 Harris St.
Due to the overwhelming success of our inaugural 8-week mindfulness meditation program, we will be including four new mindfulness mediation sessions weekly beginning August 22nd.
Mindfulness meditation sessions will be 30 minutes, Tuesdays 12pm & 6pm, Thursdays 7am & 12pm; and will be held at bounceMINDBODY @ 36 Harris street.
One on one, small group, and corporate mindfulness meditation is also available, to book contact email@example.com
We start with a yoga class to exercise and connect,
we play games and have fun with friends.
Then it is time for some djembe African drumming followed by kids favourite music tracks accompanied with flashing disco lights and the famous bounceREHAB fog machine!!
The children will love their Kids Night Out
almost as much as their parents will!
5-12 year olds.
Fridays from 4-5pm. Starts August 25th.
For class times and availability contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are one of the lucky ones you will know someone like Kathryn. She’s always smiling and has a heart of solid gold.
She came to us at bounceREHAB after a left medial meniscectomy. Although in intense pain - Kathryn would do anything for anyone despite her own ongoing discomfort. She is on a first name basis with all our members now and is the first to offer encouragement. She has many friends at bounceREHAB including staff.
She is also the first to sample any new products we may get in our shop and make a purchase. Especially if it is on her advice! She rarely leaves bounce empty handed - having a particular fondness for our whole foods section whether it be for herself or her children!!
Kathryn is a dedicated member of bounceREHAB and does 3 or 4 Pilates classes per week as well as her Physiotherapy with Matt & Paul and massage with Stuart. Kathryn has also introduced her husband to Wolf Pack Pilates every Saturday. Its a joy to see Kathryn at bounceREHAB each week with her heart warming smile and her delightful children in tow.
Mindfulness Happy Hour @ WeWork
We had a fabulous time collaborating with Vinteloper (a world class boutique winemaker from the Adelaide Hills) to deliver a Mindfulness Happy Hour @ WeWork's stunning co-working space on the 20th of July. The event was a one off community night to introduce the Pyrmont community to the benefits of mindfulness meditation and sample some top notch wines at the same time. Mad gratitude to all of our bounce clients and staff who supported us on the night.
Going forward we will be offering Yoga @ WeWork Thursday morningsat 8am.

Come and get your 70's disco groove on @bounce
This month Samantha's Wed 7pm and Friday 6am Pilates Reformer classes have been struck with Disco Fever - packed with great 70's music and lots of fun with our national dance-gymnastics physio Sam Panos.
Complete with flashing lights and fog machine, we do nothing by halves at bounce so we hope to see you there!!!

Disco-Pilates is on Wednesdays @ 7pm and Fridays @ 6am with Sam
After a Lumbar discectomy in 2008, Gina Lagos was suffering with chronic pain & severe discomfort. After a second prolapsed disc in 2014 which kicked off even more pain and loss of mobility, she was advised by surgeons to have a spinal fusion and was booked for the surgery in December.
However in September 2014, Gina found bounceREHAB. Matt’s words to Gina were "Give me 6 months". She was given an intensive rehab program consisting of Physiotherapy with Matt, Pilates & PhysioFitness with Paul & Massage with Colleen. Ginas condition improved so much the scheduled surgery was no longer necessary and cancelled. Gina has
continued with her regime and due to including gut health restorative sessions with bounce Nutritionist, Caroline, Gina is now unstoppable.
Gina has continued with clinical pilates sessions and has been blessed with the birth to her gorgeous boy, Sam last year, something though impossible back in 2014. Her latest conquest was completing the Harbour Bridge climb last Saturday with team bounce. (Pictured above) Gina lights up a room when she walks in with her infectious bubbly personality, we at bounce look forward to her visits and she’s an absolute Inspiration.

Mary-Lynne tackled the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb last Saturday with support from Chronic Pain Australia & all of us here at bounceREHAB. Fourteen of us headed up in support of Mary's 3 year goal.
When Mary first started with us Mary's goal was to walk 10 metres. Mary has had both knees replaced, both hips replaced, a spinal fusion, shoulder surgeries,wrist surgeries and jaw surgeries (the list goes on). She is a representative for Chronic Pain Australia.
Mary comes to bounce for physiotherapy, clinical Pilates, remedial massage, pain management, nutrition, podiatry and personal training.This is such a huge achievement and we are so, so proud of you, Mary.

Christine appeared quite apprehensive on her first visit to bounce 2 years ago, having lost the use of her right arm due to Lymphoedema in her Right side and depending on her service dog to assist her in getting around.
Despite being a chronic pain sufferer and only having the use of her left arm, Christine continues to teach and play piano. She travels back and forth from her home in Woolongong to Sydney where she sings in the choir at the opera house and other theaters around Sydney all with her dog, Angel in toe.
On her recent cruise adventure where she visited Southampton, The Amazon, Chile, Brazil and The Easter Islands, she was coaxed in to playing piano for the entire ship along the way. There is no stopping her.
We all enjoy seeing Christine and Angel on their weekly visits to bounce where Christine has Physiotherapy and participates in a Barre class. Her will power and determination are certainly an inspiration to us all.

Boosting drinks on Tap
Enjoy kombucha on tap at bounceREHAB - nutritionist Caroline Z can show us why and when to drink it!
Kombucha is a fermented tea drink containing a SCOBY, which stands for “symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast”. In other words it contains beneficial bacteria and yeast for the gut and overall health.
Kombucha can be enjoyed as a refreshing beverage and at both pre and post exercise due to its energising properties.

“Matt, I don’t know what you
have done but, I cant move
my neck anymore!”
Mary-Lynne stepped out of the physio room with a towel wrapped around her neck. Matt looked horrified! That was my introduction to Sister Mary-Lynne, Her big heart and warm smile is an inspiration to us all.
You would never know she harboured such intense pain from her condition. She is a regular at bounce for physio, massage and Pilates.
She was joking about her neck of course..and her pratical jokes have had us in stitches ever since.
