GP Exercise Referral

You and/or your GP may feel you would benefit from a course of increased physical activity.
All exercise programmes are written with a detailed knowledge of the condition you are suffering from, medical practitioners are consulted and informed in writing and all activities are strictly monitored and controlled in a safe and effective manner.

Medical exercise referral is a specialist area and we are the qualified specialists.

Why Bother?
 
You may have to lose a lot of weight in a controlled manner, being carefully monitored with an exercise and nutrition plan would make this process as safe and effective as possible.
Diabetics can benefit enormously from regular controlled exercise. Bags of motivation and encouragement from a friendly face you have confidence in, can work wonders.
Exercising and strength building in a controlled manner before a surgical procedure can help you physically and mentally cope with the procedure and reduce your recovery time, getting you back on your feet, with a new lease of life and if you keep up your activity levels you will prolong that great feeling of improvement indefinitely.
You may suffer from a back condition - after consulting your doctor and/or chiropractor we would devise a programme designed to strengthen the back and redress any muscular imbalance that may have caused, or is continuing to cause a problem - Improving your quality of life and allowing you to get far more out of it than you did before.
You may have just completed a course of physiotherapy after a fractured limb or sports injury. In this case we may liaise with your physiotherapist and create an exercise programme designed to strengthen the injured area, speeding up recovery and helping to prevent a reoccurrence of the injury.  
You may be suffering from Osteoporosis and need to exercise to increase your bone density, or maybe you have Osteo-arthritis and need to strengthen and increase the range of movement in the affected joints.
Having Asthma should not stop you from exercising; detailed knowledge of the condition enables us to prescribe the correct activity in the right environment at the appropriate intensity. You could take control of your asthma and no longer be a slave to it.

We approach each specialised condition with a detailed knowledge and a sympathetic approach.
