We are on a mission to promote healthy living, and are seeing local people of all ages build practical steps into their daily routines to help them feel happier and healthier with amazing results.
If your GP recommends you do some exercise, we know that, for you, this can be a worrying time and keeping fit can be challenging. Be assured that our experienced exercise professionals will find a regime that's just right for you and then offer support to gently increase your activity levels and quickly improve your overall health.
If you have been referred to the Exercise on Referral Scheme by your doctor, practice nurse, health visitor or physiotherapist, the aim will be: to maintain and improve your health, wellbeing and quality of life through the introduction of suitable and regular physical activity.
What happens on an exercise on referral programme?
Your GP or other health care professional will give you an ‘exercise perscription’. Simply drop this at the Centre and one of our team will be in touch to get you started. An exercise on referral programme begins with a personal assessment by your instructor, who works with you to design your own exercise programme specifically to meet your ability and health needs.
Once you have completed your fitness assessment and are cleared to exercise, your instructor will put together an exercise programme tailored to your needs. At the end of your programme you will be re-assessed and signposted to activities in your surrounding area and/or you will have the option of taking part in a further ten week programme on the Exercise on Referral Scheme.
When & Where will sessions take place?
When? Mondays & Wednesdays 8.15am- 9.15am
