What to expect

First Appointment

Appointment: 1.5 hours

The purpose of the first appointment interview is to find out about you, your history, your medical conditions and what you want to get out of your exercise programme. Part of this initial consultation is to ensure that it is safe for you to engage in physical exercise.

Exercise Training

Length: 10 weeks
Sessions: 2 training sessions per week (approximately 1 hour per session)

During these sessions, you will participate in an individualised exercise programme. You will be closely supervised initially, with the level of supervision reducing as your health and physical fitness improves. All clients are checked before, during and following exercise to ensure they are (1) safe to take part in training, (2) safe to continue training and (3) safe to go home after the training session.

Exercise Functional Reassessment

Appointment: 1 hour

After your 10-week programme, you will be re-assessed to determine the impact of the programme on your health and physical fitness. The referrer and your GP will get a report showing your initial and final exercise assessments results – with changes in health and physical fitness highlighted.
