About Us

Our Approach

At Sage Active (formally known as TDR Fitness & Strength Gym Elsternwick) we ensure that all clients are cared for by Sage Essa Coaches and Sage Dietitians, who have had the advanced training to enable you and assist you to improve and maintain your health and wellbeing.

Sage Active Allied Health Hubs are not ‘Gyms’ or even ‘Personal Training Studios’, they are places where you’ll receive the latest evidence based exercise therapy prescribed just for you.

Instead of PT’s helping you with your exercises and nutritional needs, you will work with Sage ESSA Coaches (EC’s) who are members of Exercise & Sports Science Australia and Dietitians who are members of Dietitians Association Australia.

Exercise Physiologists and Scientists together with Dietitians all work within their scope of practice to ensure you maintain your health, well being and fitness goals safely and efficiently.

The Sage Active Allied Health professionals work in effective consultation with other members of the allied health profession and with the medical fraternity.

Sage Active delivers world class health and fitness therapy, not only to clients experiencing a wide range of chronic conditions but also to those wanting to maintain, vitality and improved health through sustainable nutrition and a fit and functional lifestyle.
