I injured my back at work and believed I would never be able to live a vital and active life again.

Jeff suggested I join him in the mornings at Refit. The purpose was to rehabilitate my back, to build up my core strength and to simply have fun together. Tom’s program and supervision has given me hope, stamina and a fantastic zest for life. I am forever grateful.”

I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism of Tom and Refit. It transformed my view of fitness and diet and motivated me  towards a much fitter and healthier lifestyle. Tom and his program is responsible for that. Refit provides a service that is geared towards your own specific  problems and needs  and is model of what is best practice for any health related provider.

Nearly five years ago I had my neck fused (c6/7) and was referred by my neurosurgeon to Tom Schneiker at Refit for rehabilitation.

I think everybody should be referred to an Exercise Physiologist after surgery as it has made a huge difference to my health, not to mention  my improved posture.  Tom Schneiker is excellent at his job and has a good, friendly and motivational manner. I have kept coming to Tom for nearly five years and my fitness level has greatly improved and I often forget that my neck is fused as I can move it very freely.  I convinced my husband to attend a weekly one hour session with Tom and he hasn’t looked back as it keeps his weight in check and he has greatly improved his muscle tone.  I have referred many friends to Tom to put them on the right track with their health and they have all enjoyed their sessions with Tom and commented on his friendly, informative style.”

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tom for helping me with my arm rehabilitation.

I sustained an avulsion and full thickness tear of my ulnar collateral ligament while competing in a surf life saving competition in January 2014. I had big goals for the 2014 season and after 10 weeks of recovery, 6 of which I found myself in a brace 24/7 and 4 with the guidance of Tom - I achieved much more than my coach or myself could have dreamed. I competed in the Australian Titles in April of 2014 and finished 5th in the sprint and 8th in my flags events. Many people didn't think I would be running or thinking about flags for the rest of that season. I am eternally grateful for the time, knowledge and belief Tom put into my program. As a third year physiotherapy student I would highly recommend and refer patients, friends and family to Tom and the (RE)FIT team for seamless rehabilitation. Thanks again for everything.”

We have been clients of Tom Schneiker for over two years.

I was referred to him following spinal surgery for rehabilitation. I was so impressed with his ability and the positive effect it had on my health that my wife also started to have therapy with him. Since beginning with Tom I have seen my level of strength and fitness improve enormously and have not had back pain. Both of us are extremely impressed with his commitment to his clients and his positive nature. We both feel that his therapy has improved our overall health and is vital to our ability to continuing working as dentists. I would recommend Refit wholeheartedly to any one recovering from injury or just wanting to stay healthy.”

Tom Schneiker at Re-Fit was referred to us by a Neurosurgeon who had operated on my wife's back.

I had also recently had major surgery and was looking for a rehab exercise program. We have found Re-Fit to provide an exceptional service, highly professional and provided excellent advice around programs for both our rehabilitation. Tom and his team have guided us through our rehab program and we both now exercise regularly for fun and health and well being. We would have no hesitation in endorsing the Re-Fit team for this type of work.
