BSTHG provides community-based Phase IV exercise classes for cardiac patients designed to improve and maintain their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. These services include group exercise classes and personal training delivered by BACPR (British Association of Cardiac Prevention & Rehabilitation) qualified instructors
Patients attending these programmes present with chronic or post-acute cardiovascular disease but are able to preserve or resume optimal functioning through practice of improved health behaviours. As a result they can slow down or reverse the progression of coronary heart disease and this may include a reduction in medication. Patients are referred on to the programme by their GP, cardiologist or local NHS Phase III team (Royal Sussex County Hospital and Princess Royal Hospital).
All classes last approximately 50 mins. Please give yourself plenty of time to change clothing before the session starts so as to not disrupt the class.
