Returning to Gyms: Exercise Physiologists are your Best Asset

With the recent announcement that gyms will be allowed to open from June 13th  many will be eagerly awaiting the return to their normal exercise routines. For some, however, there will still be a sense of uncertainty surrounding health, safety and timing.

That is why your Exercise Physiologist is your best asset as you get ready to return to gyms. An Exercise Physiologist is a health professional who will individually assess your exercise strategy and whether it is safe for you to return to a gym environment. Who better to determine whether exercise is safe and assess your health risk than a health professional who understands the pathology of all diseases and is specifically trained to prescribe the correct exercise to treat them?

Longevity Exercise Physiology will be gym-based, from Monday 16th June, in the following locations:
