GP referral

Even if you have a medical condition that requires special care and attention, you should still be able to exercise. And in order to do so safely, it has to be monitored by a professional that your GP will have referred you to.

As a qualified exercise referral instructor, I will design a safe and effective exercise programme, appropriate to your medical condition, taking its implications for exercise into consideration. I can help anyone with any of the following medical conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Simple mechanical non-specific back pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hypertension
  • Hypercholesterolaemia
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress

Benefits:

The positive effects of exercise on our health generally speaking have already been proven a long time ago. That remains true if you are suffering from a medical condition, as physical activity can ease the symptoms of certain long-term health conditions. It also can improve recovery from chronic diseases.

For example if you are suffering from Osteoporosis, regular strength training will help increase bone density. A high blood pressure on the other hand can be treated with a regular cardiovascular exercise routine.
