Our Exercise Referral scheme is a great way for people with long term health conditions to increase physical activity levels and improve health. At Everyone Active we want everyone to enjoy and maintain at least 30 minutes of physical activity, 5 times a week, as part of a healthy lifestyle.
The Exercise referral scheme covers a wide range of health conditions including high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, overweight or obesity, depression or anxiety, osteoporosis among other conditions, all of which we could help you with.
If you want to positively influence your health and wellbeing then our trained fitness instructors are ready to get you started with a great variety of enjoyable physical activities to benefit your health.
Our instructors will help encourage you to start a suitable exercise programme, promote healthy lifestyle changes, advise you on how to exercise safely and support you through the programme with any advice you need.
Regular physical activity can benefit your heart health, manage your weight, improve your muscle and joint functions, and positively affect your mind. Not only will it help you manage and control existing conditions, but it will help protect you from developing other health complications too.
To get started please speak to your local centre or Health Professional about being referred onto our scheme where you will be able to use a range of facilities with expert guidance and support.
