What is Exercise Referral?

If you, your doctor or other Health Professional thinks that exercise could help you, then ask to be referred to one of our qualified exercise referral specialists.  They can help you achieve your best results, provide safe and effective exercise whilst helping you to make positive changes to your lifestyle and become active for life.

We can help you if you have or are at risk of a long term condition including cardiovascular disease, arthritis, COPD, cancers, asthma, back pain, diabetes or obesity to name just a few.

Our qualified exercise referral specialist will discuss an activity plan based on your current health, what you enjoy doing and you would like to try. We will work with you in our relaxed, friendly and comfortable surroundings to advise, support and motivate you to reach your goals.

Sessions are delivered in a group exercise setting in our full air conditioned gyms, where a fun and supportive community is developed to motivate you to meet your goals.

If you want to make a difference to your health, then ask your GP or Health Professional for a referral to Oakwood Wellbeing and we can start your journey to a new lifestyle.
