Exercise referral programme
Pilates Donegal will shortly be introducing a new exercise programme for patients referred by their GP or Physiotherapist.
The purpose of the programme is to improve the health and wellbeing of inactive individuals and encourage long-term lifestyle change.
In particular it is aimed at individuals who have a medical condition that will benefit from exercise. Most health conditions are helped by being physically active.
Exercise can improve quality of life by:
- reducing deaths from heart disease
- helping control blood sugar levels
- reducing blood pressure
- helping control cholesterol levels
- increasing bone density
- building all over body strength
- reducing body fat
- reducing back pain.
