Exercise on Referral

What is Exercise on Referral?

Exercise on referral is a way for you to get started on your own personal exercise programme whilst being advised and supervised by qualified, experienced and professional exercise staff.

Here at lifestyle we offer the Shropshire exercise referral scheme. Our highly trained exercise staff can help to design individual exercise programmes that can help benefit a number of medical conditions including:

  • Heart related illness and Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • Cancer Rehabilitation
  • Muscle and joint problems / replacement
  • Stress, Depression, Anxiety
  • High Blood pressure
  • Stroke recovery
  • Weight Management
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory
  • Knee/Hip/Joint pain

Plus many more…

We have been here since 1988 and have supported thousands of people through exercise referral. We understand that everybody’s needs are different, therefore make sure that your programme is tailored specifically for you. We help you to achieve your goals whatever they may be in a safe and effective way under the supervision of our highly trained staff. We maintain very close links with clinicians that trust us to deliver safe and effective exercise for their patients.

If you wish to join then the process is really simple. Either pick up a referral form from your GP or download one here. (you’ll need your GP/Health Professional to sign the form). Then give us a call on 01743 355779 to book in for your initial consultation. At this consultation we will find out a bit more about you and then design your individual programme. This session is with a very experienced and highly qualified member of the Exercise Science team (e.g. Clinical Exercise Physiologist/Certified Practitioner)

The programme lasts 3 months at which point a follow up consultation is carried out, in order for you to see your progress. We will write to your GP (or other referrer)  to inform them of your. progress. When you have finished your three month referral period,  you have the option to continue at Lifestyle via membership  (you will not pay initial consultation fee).
