pt profiles: name - Georgie glaves

Why Georgie likes being a PT: "What I love about being a PT is supporting people to reach their goals.  I like watching people progress and reach goals they didn't think was possible."

I started having PT sessions with Georgie at the beginning of 2018 to help improve my fitness to get in to the Navy. Without all her help, expert advice and motivational talks I wouldn't be where I am today. She enabled me to have confidence in myself and my abilities, she has helped me to always push myself that bit further. Thank you Georgie for getting me Navy fit and for helping me to push through all my mental barriers, I would 100% recommend Georgie to anyone and everyone, especially anyone wanting to join the Military.

Poppy Shallis (Customer Testimonial)

My wife and I have been under Georgie's guidance since September 2018 and in these few months we have been absolutely gobsmacked at how far we have come. From our perspective, when I started this, I didn't think that I would be able to do it, but Georgie has the knack of being able to get the best out of you and her sessions are also fun. It's amazing how quickly our twice weekly gym visits have become such an integral part of life and we thoroughly recommend her.

exercise referral

Exercise referral schemes are designed to help people who would benefit from regular exercise. Physical activity can play an important role in preventing and managing health conditions such as; coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, mental health problems, musculoskeletal conditions and some cancers. It also has a positive effect on wellbeing and mood, providing a sense of achievement or relaxation and release from daily stress.

Our instructors are all highly experienced, we have level 3 GP referral instructors, and specialised BACPR cardiac rehabilitation instructors in our team. To be referred to us you will need a referral form, which can be completed by health professionals and medical providers. If you feel that you could benefit from our exercise referral scheme, contact us today and discuss your options with one of our instructors. 

phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation

Phase IV is a structured programme of exercise that follows on from hospital rehabilitation. It is an exercise and education programme for people recovering from heart attacks, heart surgery and cardiac interventions. The classes are led by highly qualified and knowledgable BACPR cardiac rehabilitation instructors. It can increase fitness levels, reduce cardiac symptoms, improve health and reduce the risk of future heart problems.

Initially a meeting will be arranged with one of our cardiac referral instructors. An initial assessment and screening will be completed and an appropriate rehabilitation programme discussed.

Our Cardiac referral sessions are held at Bersted Park Community Centre:

  • Mondays: 10.45am - 12.15pm & 6.00pm - 7.30pm
  • Wednesdays: 10.00am - 11.30am, 12.45pm - 1.45pm & 7.00pm - 8.45pm
  • Fridays: 10.45am - 12.15pm

Our phase IV group was established in 2000, and since then has gone from strength to strength. The sessions have benefitted many in the local community over the years. We now run six exercise groups a week at Bersted Park.  All have a friendly and welcoming atmosphere whilst offering specialist support and guidence.  

I am extremely proud to be part of a team that is passionate about helping others achieve their fitness and wellbeing goals. We would love the opportunity to be part of your journey, and look forward to meeting you soon.
