LIVE WELL WITH COPD

PULMONARY WELLBEING

LWCOPD operate two Pulmonary Wellbeing Exercise Groups at the Gosport Leisure Centre.  Cost £2.00 per session.


WEDNESDAY - 13:30 - 14:30.  Ideal as a follow up maintenance exercise group for those who have completed the NHS Pulmonary Rehabilitation Course or can be used as an introduction to Exercise.  It is advisable to have a GPs or Respiratory Nurses Referal for this group but not mandatory.  It is also open to Carers of COPD Patients to enable home exercise and of course for their own benefit if they need to exercise.


FRIDAY - 12:00 and 13:00.  Open to all who suffer with COPD and carers although a referral is useful to ensure safety in exercise.  This group is not quite as physical as Wednesday and concentrates more on strength, stamina and balance. 

 

Contact us for more information or just come along.

Do not let the word "Exercise" put you off, after all said and done that walk round to the newsagents, that bit of gardening or even just putting out the bins is all exercise - the main thing is to keep ourselves motivated and moving.  Our groups do just that and you are encouraged to only do what you can.  It is not competative and we all keep an eye out for each other and of course have a good ole laugh especially at some of the music the trainers play - '70s disco has nothing on it!

EXERCISE IS THE BEST MEDICINE FOR COPD - IT OPENS AIRWAYS, IMPROVES THE FLOW OF OXYGEN AND

REBUILDS MUSCLE MASS TO ENABLE US TO DO MORE AND LEAD A BETTER STANDARD OF LIFE.
