The Logistics of the Program
Begin your journey by booking yourself for an initial assessment.
This initial assessment is all about setting achievable goals and developing a strength training program that suits your needs. Once you have booked your initial assessment, you may need to talk to your doctor and have them complete the Recommendation to Participate Form.
Not everyone will need their doctor’s approval to participate in Life for Life®, just those that are identified as having a higher risk of certain exercise related complications. The initial assessment is an essential part of the Lift for Life® referral process as it allows the Lift for Life® trainer to design an individual program specifically to the needs of all Participants.
Lift for Life’s training program comes in Bronze, Silver, Gold programs.
All sessions are run in small groups, up to 4 people, and you only need to attend 2 sessions a week to start noticing improvements. Tony will guide you through each session, with individual advice and support, in a friendly environment.
If the small group class does not suit you a 1-1 option is available.
