Having a chronic illness means that you have extending periods where your movement is reduced significantly and at times stopped. Unfortunately this compounds the illness by deconditioning the cardiovascular system of the heart and lungs and the muscles and joints of the body.

That is why, exercise is a very important tool and regular exercise can help improve aerobic fitness as well as maintain strength and flexibility. This will help to ensure that carrying out daily tasks are made easier and will also help reduce the risk of injury and improve your quality of life.

Because of these changes, and under the guidance of an exercise physiologist, our exercise programmes can help improve the lives of people suffering from chronic conditions such as:

  • COPD
  • Cancer

  • Heart conditions

  • Diabetes

  • Parkinson’s

Every programme will contain an in-depth assessment and screening to help ensure that the exercise programme is the best fit for the individual. The exercises will be monitored so that the intensity and volume is maintained at the recommended levels throughout.

Cancer related fatigue.

For survivors of cancer, fatigue from the treatment and the condition can often be quite distressing. Exercise has been shown to be a suitable intervention to help reduce those levels of fatigue. An exercise programme of this kind is suitable for those who are currently undergoing treatment and those whose treatment is completed.

Return to sport or returning to the gym.

Returning to sport or returning to the gym can be daunting after a long period away with injury. If you would like to return to the gym our experts can help design a programme to help you return to training and help you gain the confidence you need. Using your injury history and a full assessment, this programme will ensure that your progress will be maintained long after your treatment period has finished. A structured exercise plan can also help to prevent re injury form doing too much too soon.
