  • Are you living with or recovering from heart disease, surgery or a long term health condition?
  • Would you like to become fitter and healthier?
  • Are you unsure what type of exercise is good or right for you?


Exercise can help to manage many forms of heart and circulatory disease. It is also beneficial for people with diabetes, high blood pressure and other common conditions. It can help to improve your symptoms and general health.


“Heart works” exercise classes are specialist cardiac rehabilitation and exercise referral classes, suitable for those with common health conditions, and others who want to reduce their chances of developing them.


If you would like to improve your health and fitness but have health limitations then these exercise classes are for you, as guidance is available from specialist fitness instrcutors.


We advise you to check with a medical professional (e.g. GP) before starting a class, to make sure the exercise is right for you.


What to expect

The format of the class and exercises included allow you to work with others or at your own pace, (even if you are a beginner) with guidance from a qualified instructor. After a full body warm up you complete a circuit of 14 exercises for one minute each. A cool down with stretches is performed at the end of the class, allowing you to fully wind down after your exercise.


Information on physical activity, healthy eating and local activities is also provided, to help you to live a healthy, happy lifestyle. Family and friends are welcome to attend with you if you would like some extra encouragement.
