THE GP REFERRAL SCHEME– in 3 easy steps:
STEP 1 – Once referred by your medical professional, we’ll book you in for an informal assessment with our GP Referral consultant to discuss your objectives, explain the scheme in depth and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
STEP 2 – Our consultant will arrange an appointment with you to run through a specific programme, personalised to meet your needs. A typical programme will include either gym or water based exercises, whilst others may benefit from a combination of both.
Step 3 – After six weeks we will review your current programme. At this point either a new programme of exercises will be devised, or a continuation of your current routine. Your GP Referral will not expire, providing membership is taken out– as we aim for continued progress!
OPTIONS AVAILABLE WHEN REGISTERED:
THE GYM –With a range of equipment to help you train both aerobically and anaerobically, significant progress is made within the initial six week period. The consultant will be on hand during exclusive referral times throughout the week to help motivate and answer any questions.
THE SWIMMING POOL – At 30 degrees centigrade, our pool is the warmest in the area. This means you can perform water based exercises along with swimming itself at a comfortable temperature, to help achieve your objectives. Access in and out of the pool is easy, as we have graduated steps or a hoist to help you.
FITNESS CLASSES – For some referrals, fitness classes may be an added option to your programme.
Senior active – Tuesdays 12.30 – 13.15 and Fridays 13:15 – 14:00
