Can React is a personalised exercise programme that is tailored to the individual, their current fitness and their needs.
First, we will be in touch to arrange a short interview to understand your current need and an assessment of your fitness level. The assessment consists of easy exercise tests that helps us to design your individualised programme. Following this you will receive a personalised exercise programme that will be tailored to your needs. The exercise programme consists of a weekly exercise plan, a supervised exercise session online with your exercise physiologist. You will receive stepwise guidance. Your exercise physiologist will show you how to do the exercise and guide you through the one-to-one sessions. This will be continued for 12 weeks. We will monitor your progress and adjust the programme for maximum benefit. The exercise programme can be attended online from your home.
This year we are providing a full health and fitness assessment at the start of the programme on campus. We can discuss this further when we talk. If this is difficult the programme can also be completed fully online or at home.
