Labour-led Exeter City Council’s Leisure is leading the way with Exercise Referral Classes, a program making positive changes, it helps people with medical conditions improve their fitness and wellbeing through exercise.
The classes provide a safe and supportive environment for people with health conditions to exercise, socialize and improve their overall well-being.
The program has been successful in transforming the lives of its participants, and with the help of trained instructors, individuals with conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis have been able to benefit from physical activity to reduce symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Many participants have seen significant improvements in their health and overall fitness levels, which has boosted their confidence and motivation to continue leading a healthy lifestyle.
Cllr Josie Parkhouse, Lead Councillor for Leisure Services and Physical Health, said: “I’m very proud of the health referral scheme and our team is very passionate about what they do.
“Exercise has been proven to help with so many different medical conditions and that’s why this service is absolutely vital. Those taking part have got somebody with them every step of the way that completely understands their medical condition and medication.”
The classes are held in several leisure centers across Exeter, providing easy access for everyone. With a variety of classes, including Aqua Fit, Pilates, and Yoga, individuals can find an exercise program that suits their needs and preferences.
The exercise referral program is an excellent initiative led by Labour-led Exeter City Council that supports the community’s health and well-being. It is a testament to the dedication and commitment of Exeter Leisure in providing world-class services that truly transform lives.
