What conditions can be helped?

Activity can play a key role in assisting postoperative recovery, mobility, insomnia, back pain and weight loss, as well as improving self-esteem and fitness. In addition, research has proven that regular activity can improve a broad range of physical and psychological medical conditions including amongst others: Angina, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, hypertension, asthma, anxiety and depression.

What would I need to wear?

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and soft soled shoes or trainers.

When would I need to attend?

For high risk patients, or patients that need more one to one assistance, we have specific sessions throughout the week to ensure that you are supported - however the majority of patients referred to us are able to use the centre at any time, so that you can participate in the scheme when it is convenient to you.

How do I get referred?

A local GP, practice nurse, consultant or other medical professional refers patients by issuing them with a 'Referral Form'. This referral gives details of any medical problems that you may have which will need consideration when one of our qualified instructors is formulating an appropriate activity regime.

Is there a waiting list to be seen?

You do need to make an appointment for your first assessment but a suitable day and time is usually found within 14 days.

What happens when I have finished the scheme?

We are able to offer you a three month gym membership, again at a reduced rate for just £30 per month (a saving of £15 a month). 

I'm currently not very fit and a bit over weight, will I feel out of place in the gym? Is it full of fit people wearing lycra?

That is seriously a myth - our gyms are used by normal people, just like yourself, working to improve their wellbeing. If you are at all unsure, just pop along to your local centre and one of our friendly customer advisors will show you around so that you can see for yourself.

What are the benefits of regular activity?

It's a fact that taking regular exercise dramatically increases your chances of living healthier and longer. The current recommendation for physical activity is 30 minutes of moderate activity (like brisk walking) on five or more days of the week.

Activity can make you feel good, keep your heart strong, give you more energy, reduce blood pressure, help you sleep better, reduce stress and manage your weight.
