Exercises are designed around your condition and level of fitness and ability.
Postural Stability classes - Giving you the strength and confidence to prevent a fall, if you do have a tumble then you will be able to get yourself back up with the training given in this class. Classes are currently being hosted by Horsham West Sussex County council (Well Being team) and lead by myself and other Specialist Postural stability instructors so you are in safe hands.We have different levels of abilities ranging from frame users to independent walkers.
GP referrals - Exercise will benefit any health related issue, so your GP can refer you onto a specialist exercise professional who has been trained to a high level keeping you safe while you exercise. Some conditions do not need the referral of your GP including MS, just give me a ring and we can talk about your condition and how I can help to get fitter and feel healthier.
Phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation - After you have been released from hospital you normally attend phase 3 in a hospital setting, so heart specialist can monitor your progress in a safe environment. It is recommend that you carry on exercising after phase 3 to get your heart stronger and fitter, this is where phase 4 comes in. In phase 4 you are regularly monitored by a specialist exercise professional to make sure you are working in a safe range, your heart is challenged to get to the right level. All exercise prescription is personal to you and your abilities, these are finely tuned to make sure you are working safely and effectively leading to an independent healthy living lifestyle.
Cancer Rehabilitation - Exercise has been proven to help with recovery of cancer and the side effect of the treatment as well as reducing the risk of secondary cancer appearing. Exercises are prescribed to your ability and the treatment you are on, these are reviewed at every session. The side of effect of treatment can make you very tired on some days, so exercises will be reduced or changed on those days. As a specialist exercise professional, I have been trained to know what areas can be work on and challenged after surgery and treatment depending on the type of cancer you have or had.
Multiple Sclerosis/Parkinson's - If diagnosis is found early exercise can help delay the side effects of this condition, keeping muscles strong and balanced. I have many client with this condition and have seen it in many stages, so I know what muscles need to be worked on and how the body will react to this condition. If exercise is started long after diagnosis, it can still help with posture and muscle strength but not as effective as early diagnosis.
Diabetes and Obesity - These two conditions are very closely linked, one can be caused by the other as well as increased risks of cancer. With the right exercise and a healthy diet diabetes can be controlled and in case of Type 2 stopped. There are many factors in which makes losing weight hard or seem impossible, there is the calories in and calories out theory but could be down to hormone levels, family history to name but a few. I will take a close look at your daily diet and see if there are any other reasons behind your weight gain, with the correct exercise you can get your body working far more efficiently burning the fat and excess calories needed to lose weight.
