Wheelchair Accessible Equipment

Wednesday, 02 June 2021

Kwinana Recquatic is committed to discovering who you are, what your goal is, and giving you the tools to achieve it. With the recent additions to the Recquatic fitness services, accessibility has been a primary factor in equipment selection and layout.

We are proud to offer a range of wheelchair adaptable equipment in both our first and ground floor studios, providing cardiovascular, resistance, and wellness options including:

Ground Floor Gym and ROMWOD Studio

  • Technogym Element+ Inclusive Chest Press, Shoulder Press, and Low Row. Each unit is fitted with a swing-away seat that is easily removed to allow wheelchair access, and with additional handgrips that allow use without exerting the shoulders.
  • Technogym Excite Live Top is medically certified and provides the best cardiovascular upper body training on the market. It allows users to achieve cardiovascular efficiency in the presence of lower limb limitations.
  • On-demand mobility classes with WheelROM in the ROMWOD studio. WheelWOD and ROMWOD have teamed up to bring you the WheelROM adaptive pathway. It has ten adaptive pathways that will help you mobilise and get those tight shoulders, packed spine and posterior chain open again.

First Floor Cardio Studio and Functional Training Studio

  • In addition to the Technogym Excite Live Top, the Cardio studio is home to a Dual Adjustable Pulley, offering user-friendly cable resistance to perform a vast array of movements for all Recquatic members, including wheelchair access. Combined with the wide-open space and free weights available in the Functional Training Studio, the first floor at Recquatic provides all the tools to meet your training goals.

If you haven’t explored what is on offer at the Recquatic, there is no better time. Drop through any time during our opening hours and an experienced staff member will show you through these fitness spaces. Find out more about our membership options. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Upgrades to Kwinana Recquatic Fitness Equipment

Tuesday, 18 May 2021

Kwinana Recquatic is thrilled to announce that new strength and cardiovascular equipment is inbound for our fitness services!

We are extremely excited to be upgrading our gym and offering state of the art equipment to our members and the Kwinana community.

All cardio equipment and all resistance machines and benches will be replaced as part of this upgrade. The only equipment not being replaced are the spin bikes and free weights such as dumbbells. Recquatic’s upper body equipment will now be fully wheelchair accessible and there will be two wheelchair accessible upper body ergometers added to the cardio range.

The removal of existing equipment will commence Monday, 24 May 2021, and the new equipment commissioned Friday, 28 May 2021. Due to the significant works scheduled, Recquatic will close the ground floor Gym and first floor Cardio Studio only for this period.

The first floor Functional Training Studio will operate as the primary gym for this week for member access between 5:30am to 9pm Monday to Friday. There will be additional equipment in this studio to support member demand and a gym instructor on duty for support. During this week, all classes scheduled in the first floor Functional Training Studio will run in alternative studios. There will be no class cancellations to the schedule. A copy of the this timetable can be found here.

All memberships and visit passes will remain active for this period. Additionally, Standard Fitness members will be allowed pool access between Monday 24 May 2021 and COB Friday 28 May 2021.

Understanding there will be an impact to members through this week, contract suspensions are encouraged for those whose needs are not satisfied by the modified services. This is a really exciting period for our members, the City staff and the Kwinana community, and the disruption to standard operation has been modified as best as possible.

The following locations and services are available for all Premium Recquatic and Standard Fitness members for the period Monday 24 May 2021 to Friday 28 May 2021 inclusive:

  • First floor Functional Studio as primary gym space, staffed with Gym Instructor;

From Saturday, December 5, Kwinana Recquatic will be required to maintain a mandatory contact register for all patrons attending the Centre over the age of 16.

The contact register records will be kept for 28 days, and not used for any other purpose. They will be destroyed after this time.

This is a government requirement, and refusal to provide contact information will result in being denied entry into the venue.

All patrons entering the Recquatic Centre are required to scan the QR code upon each entry, or complete a manual form before accessing the Centre services.
