Exercise Referral

Get back to fitness with our exercise referal scheme

If you have suffered from an illness, or recently had an operation, our sessions will help you get back into fitness.

To make use of this service, you will need a ‘prescription to exercise’ from your Health professional.

Your consultation and induction will include meeting with a qualified fitness professional who will assess your situation and design a safe, specific exercise program for your needs. The consultation and induction is free, as the cost is covered by Horsham District Council.  You will then be able to access the gym at the following times at a discounted rate. 

For more information contact the gym team on 01403 211311.

Cancer Rehab

These sessions are suitable for anyone currently undergoing cancer treatment or those post treatment that want to get back into fitness, reduce their fatigue levels and rebuild strength.

Sessions are run by Becky Richards our Fitness Manager who is trained in Cancer Rehabilitation. An initial assessment with Becky is followed by twice weekly sessions to include a quick health check, 30-40 minute class session and a discussion session at the end including hot drinks to chat through progress.  Participants are not committed to attend both sessions each week and we appreciate treatments and feeling unwell may prevent a regular schedule.   We would just encourage people to come when they can.  

Sessions run Wednesdays 12 – 1pm and Fridays 1 – 2pm.

A referral from a healthcare professional is required.  Please download the form below and complete with your GP, Consultant or MacMillan nurse.
