Who is it for?

If you are inactive, have a health condition or are recovering from injury, an exercise referral programme can help you take the first steps in becoming more active to improve your health and wellbeing.

12 week programme

This programme, which your GP or health professional can refer you to, includes exercise referral instructors who will design a personalised exercise plan to suit your individual health needs, goals and interests. There are also weekly group exercise sessions, including Otago, Hydrotherapy and Core Pilates.
