The Live Borders Health Programme supports clients living with a wide range of long-term health conditions to improve and manage symptoms while also increasing your quality of life. Introducing physical activity to your lifestyle can also reduce the chance of many further health conditions in the future.
Our range of Health Conditions classes are designed to be adaptable, so they are suitable for a range of abilities and needs, and are a great introduction to the gym and exercise environment. The Health Conditions Circuits classes and Health Yoga are instructor lead while our Supported Gym Sessions provide the opportunity to work through your own gym programme with the comfort of having one of our qualified Health Instructors on hand to provide any advice or assistance you may need.
