About Exercise Works!
Exercise - every patient, every opportunity.
All health professionals should consider exercise as a ‘medicine’ in its own right, recommending and prescribing physical activity at all appropriate opportunities.
As a preventative treatment physical activity should be recommended for many diseases as a first line treatment.
Here at Exercise Works! we understand how important exercise is in the management of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, depression, sleep disorder, dyslipidaemia, osteoporosis, obesity, overweight, and some cancers.
Exercise Works! is also able to demonstrate the cost effectiveness of exercise advice for patients in hospitals or on waiting lists for operations. Pre and Post operative exercise advice is important in a patients health status and specific physical activity support can significantly reduce the associated medical and surgical risks of elective surgery.
We are dedicated to educating and supporting health professionals to understand the benefits and the ability to give constructive exercise advice to patients.
We do this through:
- Educational consultancy.
- Creating training modules for health professionals and the public.
- Using innovative methods and technology.
- Enabling patients to access quality exercise advice and support materials.
Exercise Works! offers professionals from Sports and Exercise Medicine, the NHS, the Fitness Industry, Designers, Patient information groups, Private Industry, the Telecommunications Industry, the Film Industry and Charities to work with your organisation to help deliver the best exercise advice to patients and the public.
