Who we help at the Wellness Gym.
Exercise can be hard enough, but for those with disabilities, there are significant extra challenges to overcome depending upon the disability. From mobility issues to the ability to safely follow instruction, the gym can sometimes feel alien or a scary dangerous place yet the benefits of exercise regardless of age and health are endless. Regular exercise stops muscle wastage, helps reduce weight, tone up areas of excess skin but also can help regulate sleep, blood pressure problems and appears not to mention just feeling good and positive.
Furthermore, Fitness without boundaries looks after those who suffer a long-term illness. The Fitness without boundaries Wellness area helps take your exercise rehabilitation needs from the NHS after it has finished it treatment that it can give you.
Following a major health trauma, e.g. a stroke, Brain injury and Heart attack the NHS can only offer their services for a limited period of time. Whilst the NHS may continue to check up on us, they do not have enough money to keep you in the specialist rehabilitation service and that is were Fitness without Boundaries comes in and helps take it from the NHS and gives you that support both physical and mental.

Who we work with.
We work closely with many doctors in Northamptonshire on a referral scheme for those who could benefit from exercise. Because they know and value our expertise in this area. It doesn’t matter what your reasons are. We have some MS (multiple sclerosis) links through Northamptonshire. Furthermore, we have now got a strong link with Parkinson’s, Stroke and Cancer NHS team and charities which send us people that need help with their exercise rehabilitation.
Why do they recommend us?
Whether it be you need to lose weight, blood pressure issues, sleep problems, disability and in need of avoiding muscle wastage or a host of more. Our skills and experience in all these fields are why G.Ps in Northampton understand the value we bring that is why we are proud to be on the activity on referral . The scheme is run in order for you to get the most out of each session.
