exercise REFERRAL (PARiS)

Physical Activity Referral in Stockport (PARiS) is the Exercise Referral scheme delivered by Life Leisure, designed to help inactive people with chronic mild to moderate medical conditions become and stay more physically active, whilst benefiting and improving their health.

A joint partnership between Life Leisure and Public Health, the scheme is delivered by a strong and experienced team of health and exercise professionals, who provide guidance, support and pathways towards health improvement.

Research has shown that becoming more physically active can benefit a person in the management of their medical condition.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE FOR THE PARIS SCHEME?
 

  • Are you physically inactive (undertaking less than 1 x 30 minutes per week of moderate intensity exercise) and NOT a current member at a Life Leisure facility?

HOME ACTIVITY GUIDE

Stockport’s Home Activity Guide provides simple and effective exercises for people who suffer with mobility problems, focusing on developing functional fitness to improve quality of life, for example, shoulder mobility exercises (making reaching for a can of beans from the cupboard easier) and band stability exercises (to prevent falls).

The guide includes a range of progressive physical activities that can be completed in the home, with 3 levels: Beginner (chair based), Beginner+ (chair based with more resistance) and Intermediate (standing exercises). Anyone wishing to use the guide should attend a one off master class where they will receive a copy of the guide. The workshop is intended to ensure you are exercising safely and are given the motivation to start and adhere to the programme.

For more information on master classes and the guide call 0161 482 0900 or email Avril Jackson.
