Information for Members
YMCA Positive Health exercise referral programme lasts for twelve weeks, but may be shorter depending on your exercise experience, and you will be asked to come in three times per week. You will be required to undertake physical activity that will be suited to your fitness and ability levels and likes and dislikes. Please see our Information Sheet for further details on the specifics of the programme.
With the continual assistance and support of a qualified fitness instructor, participation in the programme will address the changes to your body caused by required medication. In addition, through its structured and social approach, the programme is specifically designed to improve self-esteem and give you increased confidence.
During the programme participants are eligible for reduced therapy prices, nutrition support and life coaching.
In addition to the 12-week programme, members are encouraged to join the Positive Health team and other members on an annual Weekend in Sussex. The weekend is optional with an additional charge and proves very popular with our Positive Health members.
Confidentiality is very important to us. Any member of staff that has access to your details will have to sign a confidentiality agreement. When you join the programme, you will be issued with a membership card which looks exactly like any ordinary membership card of the Club.
