Active Referral Exercise Programme

Our Active Referral Exercise Programme is a tailored physical activity programme aimed at using exercise to support individuals with specific medical conditions. A medical professional refers a client to our 12 week exercise programme. These sessions are supervised by a qualified instructor. There are two locations for referral are; Waterfield Leisure Centre - Aqua Referral and Goodlife Health Club – Gym based

Clients will be contacted either by telephone or post to be booked in for a face-to-face consultation. Within the consultation the instructor will explain the process of the programme and take some baseline measurements. These are taken at the start and end of the programme.

The client will then have weekly sessions either in a small group or on a one-to-one basis depending on the location of physical activity. On completion of the programme the instructor will explain the exit routes for physical activity within the community. This is so that clients can continue to improve their health.

Cardiac Pulmonary Rehabilitation

A medical professional refers a client to our 16 week exercise programme. These sessions are supervised by a qualified instructor and take place at Waterfield Leisure Centre - Group Studio Based.

Steady Steps (Falls Prevention)

An exercise programme proven to help over 65's develop strength, balance and mobility, and ultimately prevent falls.

These free sessions run weekly for 24 weeks and are relaxed, fun and social. They are designed to help those whom have suffered a fall, or are at an increased risk of falls, and who might also find themselves socially isolated.

Our Steady Steps classes run as step two on our Falls Prevention Pathway, and therefore have initial assessments that must be completed before commencing, in order to assess participants eligibility.

People may be eligible for the Steady Steps programme if they are aged over 65, are at risk of falling (e.g. have a high fear or falling or poor balance) or have fallen less than three times in the past 12 months.

Positive Activity Referral Scheme (PARS)

The Positive Activity Referral Scheme (PARS) aims at improving the lives and opportunities of inactive individuals and families within the Melton Borough to take part in sport and physical activity, to improve both their physical health and mental wellbeing.
