Jump Start (GP Referral)

Jump Start is an exciting partnership with the NHS and Tower Hamlets where individuals are referred to an exercise referral scheme to help them manage and improve a medical condition (eg. cardiovascular disease, musculo-skeletal conditions and mental health problems).

People who might benefit from a tailored exercise programme, and who meet the scheme inclusion criteria, must be referred by a Health Professional.

Personal Training

Our personal trainers provide exercise programmes for all areas of general fitness, and are there to give you all the motivation and support you need to achieve your goals.

Your trainer will design a progressive training workout just for you. They'll select the appropriate loads, reps, sets and sequence of exercises, ensuring your time is best spent, giving much better results than if you were training alone. They'll also offer nutritional and lifestyle advice.

Workouts will be challenging, educational yet fun, and hopefully you'll find the experience has a positive effect on your whole life!

All Better personal trainers have REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) level 3 qualifications or equivalent, which is the required national standard.
