Physical Activity

The Right Track Programme – Possability People is a local organisation working in partnership with healthcare professionals to help you reduce aches and pains and improve your general wellbeing. Being active, getting out and about, meeting friends, doing activities, joining groups, can help to reduce pain and improve general wellbeing. Living with pain can make it difficult to get started. Right Track can support people with that challenge. Right track links adults who experience these conditions, and their carers, with the vast range of support in the community and voluntary sector.

If you would like to know more about Right Track, please contact the Right Track team on: donna@possabilitypeople.org.uk or telephone: 01273 208934

Active Life Criteria (from Dave Brice, Active Life Coordinator):

  • The Active Life Programme is a scheme for Medical Professionals to refer their patients to when they consider their patients quality of life will be enhanced by additional activity, which is provided by independent exercise in the K2 Gym.
  • It is for patients with Medical Conditions e.g. Cancer, Cardio Issues, OrthoMusculo/Skeletal, MS, Diabetes etc. It is NOT a weight management programme as this is catered for by the WOW or by taking a Gym Membership.
  • Where Patients have been referred for Active Life and WOW it is recommended that they attend the WOW first before participating in Active Life. This gives them the opportunity to establish an attendance discipline plus reduce bodyweight thus reducing loading on the patients joints while exercising (particularly important for Obese Patients).
  • Further Active Life information can be obtained by contacting the Coordinator via 01293-585333 or preferably sign post to the Hub or complete a GP referral e-form.
