Session types explained

  • Cardiac rehab:  a group exercise class with a group warm up followed by a circuit where you will be on each work station for a minute, followed by a group cool down.

  • Circuits: A group exercise class where gym equipment (e.g. treadmill, bike) is used as part of the circuit

  •  Strength and balance class aimed at those worried about falling. Improve strength and balance in a friendly, relaxed and supportive group. Mainly standing exercises.     

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.
