NUI Galway, in partnership with Croí and the Kingfisher Fitness Club, has launched a new exercise programme, Exercise4Health designed specifically for those who due to a number of health issues are reluctant to engage in exercise. The aim of the programme is to make available an opportunity to engage in exercise or try getting fit.
All are welcome every Thursday from 1pm - 2pm.
Register to attend: New participants will need to get a medical assessment completed by Croí and they should phone Croí on 091-544310 – mentioning Exercise4Health.
Being physically active prevents and helps control a multitude of health problems, especially, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Exercise4Health provides a locally accessible opportunity for those with diabetes, heart disease, pulmonary disease; those recovering from stroke or cancer or those with breathing difficulties or other long-term health conditions, to commence a safe and beneficial exercise programme. The programme is ideally suited to anyone trying to reduce weight or indeed improve their overall health and wellbeing.
This new programme, led by expert cardiac physiotherapists/exercise specialists from Croí and delivered in conjunction with the fitness team at Kingfisher Club, will provide participants with:
- An assessment of their existing fitness level and a personalised plan for improvement
- Fitness classes delivered at a level to suit everyone
- Weekly heart-rate monitoring and personal progress tracking
- A motivating and enjoyable fitness programme which can be continued at home and which if followed will provide a measurable improvement in fitness levels
The six-week rolling exercise programme is specially designed to suit all levels of current fitness and prior to enrolling for the classes, participants will be provided with a medical assessment to ascertain their fitness level. Participants will only undertake exercise activities that suit their individual abilities and needs. Thebenefits are not just improved physical health, but meeting other participants and the fitness team at the Kingfisher Club also provides a great social outlet.
The Exercise4Health programme takes place in the Kingfisher Fitness Club at NUI Galway from 12pm-1pm every Thursday. This new initiative is proving very popular and we have the capacity to cater for many more people who are interested in joining us. All are welcome so please let your family members and friends know about the programme.
