I have been working in the fitness industry for 18 years and almost straight away got involved in specialising in rehabilitation.
I started by getting involved with the inclusive fitness initiative which made my work place at the time accessible for people with physical and visual impairments. I then started running regular exercise sessions for people who needed extra support Working with people with learning and physical disabilities. This then lead me into Cardiac Rehab which I have been doing for 13 years now and I love it. I have been running phase IV classes and also working on a one to one capacity working with people who are undergoing rehabilitation. For me, having a job you love doing and seeing how happy others are by having a place to come and interact with others who are going through the same thing and taking support from each other is great.
Being a newbie at Upbeat I would like to say how welcome you have all made me and how much I enjoy taking the classes.
