Exercise referral

Exercise referral

We coordinate an exercise referral scheme to enable healthcare professionals to refer patients for supervised exercise at an affordable cost.

How can the exercise referral scheme help you?

Exercise has been shown to:

  • reduce the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis

  • manage weight, diabetes and depression

  • lower blood pressure, cholesterol and stress levels

  • increase muscle strength and joint flexibility

  • improve self esteem and general mood

Where can you exercise with the referral scheme?

Our exercise referral programme is run from for four sites:

  • Xcel Leisure Complex, Waterside Drive, Walton on Thames, KT12 2JG

  • Hersham Village Hall, Queens Road, Hersham, KT12 5LT

  • Cobham Centre for the Community, Oakdene Road, Cobham, KT11 2LY

* Session types explained

  • A group exercise class where a warm up is carried out followed by a circuit where you will be on each work station for a minute

  • A 30 minute weekly class designed around an indoor bike with a fixed fly wheel. These classes may use heart rate monitors to ensure you are not working too hard.

  • A group exercise class where gym equipment (eg treadmill, bike) is used as part of the circuit

Note: All circuit classes have been designed specifically for Cardiac Rehab and to accommodate a vast number of referral reasons. The circuit can be adjusted to make each exercise easier or harder as appropriate or have an alternative exercise substituted where required.

Gym exercise referral

The gym exercise referral is only available at Xcel Leisure Complex, runs for 12 consecutive weeks and is structured as follows:

  • 1st appointment: Initial assessment where your referral form is discussed and all paperwork completed. A fitness test may also be carried out at this time.

  • 2nd appointment  A bespoke programme is written for you.

  • 3rd appointment  A mid-way review of progress and programme altered as necessary.

  • 4th appointment  Final assessment where the fitness test will be repeated and you will be invited to join the gym.

The total cost of the programme is £90, including one to one assessments and use of the gym for 12 weeks (restrictions apply to the gym usage in the first 6 weeks).

If you wish to swim the cost of this is £1.35 per swim under the exercise referral scheme

For more information on the Exercise Referral programme please contact the Health Development Officer.
