Ongoing Exercise Sessions
Establishing and maintaining improved fitness and well-being
Members are encouraged to maintain improved fitness and wellbeing through ongoing exercise plans devised and monitored by our team of highly trained health professionals.
When can I attend?
You can start these sessions as soon as you’ve had the fitness re-assessment performed at the end of your NHS funded exercise programme.
Will specialist staff be on hand to help?
Yes, the same exercise team members that have helped you this far will be there to encourage and assist you through these exercise sessions.
Are the sessions the same?
There’s a lot more choice and flexibility with these sessions than the ones you will have just finished. You can drop in to the gym Monday to Friday without having to book in advance. Just remember to arrive early enough to allow you to finish your programme before the end of the session.
Regular Programme Reviews
Members benefit from regular programme reviews by the same specialist staff who have looked after them during their rehabilitation programme.
Can I rejoin these sessions if I haven’t attended for a while?
Yes. We do ask you to contact the department first and discuss your return with a member of staff. If you have not attended for more than 6 months or have missed sessions through illness, you may need an exercise assessment before you start back. Please ask a member of the team for more details.
Can I bring a guest to these exercise sessions?
If you have a friend or family member who would like to attend the exercise sessions with you, then please ask a member of staff for more information about a ‘guest assessment.’ These assessments are subject to a charge of £25 (concessions apply for Passport to Leisure holders).
What our members say:
“Exercising at the gym has been a new experience for me. Coming to the gym is very enjoyable, as my exercise programme is not only tailored to my own level of fitness, but because I feel very secure in the Centre’s safe and friendly environment. The sessions also enable you to make and meet new friends – and above all, offer great value for money.”
Kay – Atrium member.
“I’ve been attending since September 2012 and now live a completely different life to what was the norm during my ‘heart trouble’. Today I am a lot fitter and healthier – thanks largely to the facilities and staff at the Centre for Exercise and Health. They are there to help everyone, regardless of their capabilities. So, my advice is to make the most of everything Atrium can offer.”
Dave – Atrium member.
