Australia's longest established Private Studio using the CHEK Practitioner Approach to Corrective Exercise

Important COVID-19 / Corona Virus information for Human Engineering.
Hello my name is Chas Barclay and I am the sole owner and operator of my business. In these changing and challenging times, I want to reassure you that my corrective exercise studio is private and each of my clients/patients are thoroughly assessed before, during and after consultations/coaching.
This is done both face to face and via questionnaires. My studio is large enough to uphold the government's social distancing guidelines and I only see clients/patients on a one-on-one basis. I have run this studio for over 20 years and I am familiar with all my clients’ health and lifestyle habits. This gives me great confidence in being able to continue delivering exercise physiology and corrective exercise rehabilitation programs in a safe and unique environment. All cleaning /sanitising of equipment, plus equipment purchasing and maintenance is undertaken by myself, so I can guarantee the integrity of the studio and the services that I provide.
I have also completed the Australian Government’s Department of Health e-learning course in Infection Control Training – COVID 19, which covers the fundamentals of infection prevention and control. This training is available for care workers across all health care settings, including allied health of which Exercise Physiology is one.
Health, fitness and quality of life are my core values.
Never has there been a more pressing time to optimise one's health, exercise choices and general well-being.
My studio is open and will continue to remain open subject to the Australian Government’s Department of Health guidelines, to ensure I can help you realise all of your goals.
I look forward to seeing you soon and should you have any questions or concerns please call me ahead of your scheduled appointment or at any time.

Significant lower back pain
"Significant lower back pain over a period of 4-5 years, an inability to sleep through the night, and not be able to hold my 1 year old in my arms for more than 2-3 minutes, are all now a non-issue, solely due to Chas's input, advice, and exercise rehabilitation program."
Completely innovative, highly productive and enjoyable
"My experience with Chas proved to be completely innovative, highly productive and enjoyable. We managed to make more progress during our 3 months together than the combined benefits of years working with various physical therapy and other exercise methods. In addition to providing a radically different approach to therapy, Chas's high energy level and enthusiasm along with his beautiful studio made it fun to train."
My shoulder has never been better
“Before I worked with Chas, I spent 2 years and thousands of dollars seeking out the advice and assistance of numerous health practitioners only to end up frustrated, disappointed, out of pocket and still injured! You'll be glad to know my shoulder has never been better! Without your guidance and programs I wouldn't be in anywhere near the physical shape I am in today - thank you!”
The regular training sessions have been extremely beneficial
“I have been a regular client of Chas Barclay’s for many months in an endeavour to delay hip surgery for as long as possible. The regular training sessions have been extremely beneficial, greatly increasing my mobility and minimising pain and loss of muscular strength; all of which allows me to maintain my participation in Tennis and Golf.”
Chas has continued to keep me focused in helping me achieve my goals
“Chas has redeveloped my age old habits and encouraged me to believe in myself and reach my personal goals. He has shown me the way to corrective physical therapy through new techniques and understanding of human mechanics. Recently during a year-long battle with cancer, Chas was instrumental in assisting with my recovery by keeping me focused and positive. As my CHEK Practitioner, Chas has continued to keep me focused in helping me achieve my goals.”
I feel I had One of the Best Personal Trainers in the Business
“When I started One-on-One on the 21st August 1995, I weighed 115.84 kg and just over 6 months later, I was successfully at 88.5 kg. He made what could be a long and boring, tedious task, fun and something that I thoroughly looked forward to every week. I trained twice a week, every week with Chas. I feel I had One of the Best Personal Trainers in the Business.”
You have done wonders for me
"You have done wonders for me. Thank you. I have no pain at all anymore, and now, at age 48, thanks to your training methods, I can do exercises that I haven’t done since I was a teenager. The methods that you use are designed to stabilise and strengthen my body without causing pain and this has worked very well indeed. My friends and family cannot believe the change in me. I’m fit and healthy and my body—from the toes up—is trim, well defined and muscular.”
