As personal trainers we are able to liase with a wide range of additional healthcare providers to ensure you are treated well and given the best possible tailored service.
For example if you to come to us with a medical condition, we would first need you to be cleared by a doctor to train. Once you are cleared by the doctor, we can then consult alongside your doctor to understand any possible effects from the condition, as well as any effects we need to monitor from things such as your medicine.
Sometimes however we may need to refer you onto a specialist, for example in the event that it may unsafe to train, or you may need a specialist environment where you can be monitored more closely – this ensures you are still able to train effectively whilst taking your healthcare needs into consideration.
If you are injured, we may refer you to a physiotherapist and work alongside them to produce an effective action plan once you are ready and able to return to the gym. This may be something as simple as a list of exercises to help strengthen the affected area, or it may require a more comprehensive plan.
We are also able to work with nutritionists and dieticians if you have any specialist dietary needs. This can ensure we are able to keep your health and performance in check taking into consideration your needs, helping you to feel great both inside and out!
