What Is The RAPID Master's Program?
The Master's Program
The Master's Program is a physiotherapy led strength and exercise class for older members of the community. As physiotherapists we are used to seeing people in pain, with injuries and post surgery. For the vast majority of these patients the biggest component of their treatment plan is progressive rehabilitation exercise.
Rather than waiting for patients to turn up at our door with injuries, we created the Master's Program to help to keep older people fit, healthy and active.
The class is a safe place for older people to exercise and train with people their own age in a physiotherapy led class. It takes place in our large facility in Dublin 12. All new members complete an individual physiotherapist appointment prior to joining the class where we go through your medical, injury and surgical history, do a full physiotherapy assessment and go through the main exercises in the class.

"I joined the Masters Program after back, shoulder and knee injuries. I know it was the best thing I ever did. Mike and Rocky are excellent teachers and give so much time and support to all in the class. I really love spending my time with such a lovely group. My energy levels have gone through the roof and back and shoulder feeling great and massive improvement with knees. Join us, you won't regret it."
"I found the Master's Program to be very helpful. When playing tennis I had a pain in my shoulder and my lower back and since starting the Master's Program I am playing completely pain free. I feel stronger generally. I found the Mast'er's Program to be an enjoyable experience with the training geared to suit my abilitiy. The coaches were very helpful and friendly with advice to ensure that I was doing the exercises in a safe manner. I would highly recommend the Master's Program"
"I joined RAPID’s Master's Program to improve my overall fitness and to try to offset the effects of osteoarthritis. Already I am seeing major benefits. My overall strength and stamina has improved hugely. I am walking longer distances with no discomfort and don’t have the aches and pains I used to get after a gardening session. With more sessions, I can see a return to swimming and hill walking. It’s a large, well equipped gym with excellent guidance from Mike and Rocky in a very positive, supportive environment. I can honestly say that it’s the best thing I’ve done in ages."
"I was sceptical about doing the class and only started during lockdown as I couldn't play tennis or swim. However, I've been doing it for 8 weeks now and find a marked improvement in both strength and mobility. I can stand, walk and play tennis for longer with less pain. Both Rocky and Mike are professional and encouraging and make attedning the class a positive experience"
I suffered back pain for a few months .I was assessed by Mike the physiotherapist. He is very professional and he identified the issue quickly.
I commenced on an exercise plan and joined the Master Program four weeks ago in Rocky Fitness Gym .
The Master Program is under the direction of Mike and Rocky.
The gym is fantastic. Both coaches are very friendly and experienced.
Each person has an individual plan to enable them to achieve their goals and become fitter and healthier .
I would highly recommend the gym and the Master Program.
