Exercise Referral Overview
Your 12-week referral period commences with an initial assessment during which we will discuss your referred condition/s and how they impact on you. We will also make decisions on how to engage you in exercise to address your referred conditions. Your allocated instructor will then begin the process of establishing a suitable exercise regime for you and providing the educational support to enhance your outcomes.
If you are exercising within the gym environment you will receive one-to-one instruction for the initial 3-4 week period with periodic reviews throughout the remaining weeks. Should you attend class-based activities, the class instructor will be made aware of your conditional needs. At the 6 week point you will undergo a mid-term assessment, during which progress will be measured along with any progressions required for your remaining referral period. You will receive ongoing support, but will be encouraged to take more responsibility for your exercising as we seek to prepare you for physical activity beyond your referral period, ensuring you have the skill and confidence to apply your exercise requirements appropriately. Due to Covid-19 measures, all assessments are to be performed as a telephone consultation.
Upon completion of your 12 weeks you will attend a finishing assessment. During this we will evaluate the schemes success for you and put in place ongoing support as you become an independent exerciser armed with the knowledge to make those vital lifestyle changes. You will also be offered periodic reviews to keep you motivated and keep things fresh. As a reward for successfully completing the scheme the Centre will offer you the opportunity to become a member of the Centre at a significantly discounted rate.
