All people with cardiac history who have attended the West Suffolk Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Course will have been advised regarding the suitability of exercising with ‘Upbeat’, taking into account their medical condition.
We advise anyone who has not been the patient attending the West Suffolk Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Course, or where you were the patient and a period of six weeks has elapsed since completion, to seek further advice from your GP regarding your suitability for exercise before starting sessions with ‘Upbeat’. You will understand, of course that ’Upbeat’ must reserve the right to refuse participation in Exercise Sessions.
The ‘Upbeat’ exercise sessions are supervised with Qualified Instructors and a Cardiac Adviser, but please remember:-
YOU EXERCISE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK
Please wear comfortable clothes and suitable footwear and remember you are not obliged to ‘keep up’. Reduce your pace if you feel stressed, make smaller movements and/or leave out arm movements. Above all enjoy it – you will certainly be better for it.
Pop in to have a look at what we do and how we enjoy it!
Other exercise opportunities such as guided walks are also arranged.
There is currently a charge of £5 per session towards class expenses – this includes a visit to the nurse if necessary and a cup of tea/coffee.
