Belong Atherton Exercise Studio

Belong logo

Belong’s specialist exercise service delivers personalised exercise programmes for rehabilitation, independence and wellbeing. We have made exercise a fundamental part of our culture and of every customer’s support plan, so that it is a measurable key performance indicator, reported on at board level.

Benefits

Exercise brings a huge range of benefits for your physical and emotional wellbeing and Belong is committed to helping people stay active and independent for as long as possible.

The benefits of regular exercise include reducing the risk of falls and huge gains through every day living through: increased muscle strength, increased flexibility, improved balance, better coordination and much more.

What we provide

Belong’s fitness instructors work alongside other health professionals to design a personalised exercise programme that is tailor-made to you. All exercise sessions are supervised, and our specialist instructors are qualified and experienced both in fitness and supporting older people.

Exercise programmes are regularly reviewed and updated, and correct techniques in posture, walking and safe transferring are taught and maintained.

Multi-professional

Local health professionals and organisations are very supportive of Belong’s award-winning service, which was developed within the framework of existing NHS initiatives and in line with accepted health and fitness ethics.

There is an effective system of referral, consultation and communication in place, and we work closely with GPs, physiotherapists and others, to develop a programme of exercise that is personalised to individual customers and appropriate to their health and fitness level.

Specialist gym equipment

We use specialist gym equipment for older people, including hi-tech SilverFit equipment. This includes large mobile screens, viewed by residents while participating in exercise. The gyms also include virtual reality games to help give individuals targeted support to stimulate brain function, with different patterns for people living with dementia, Parkinson’s or recovering from a stroke.
