personal training enquiry

Hi All,
With much regret, I’ve got to admit that I need some exercise.. and probably need to ‘hit the gym’, for various reasons. I am in need of physio to maintain some mobility and stay in control of my weight. I’ve SPMS, use a wheelchair more and more, and am not confident about using gym equipment like treadmills or weights. Can anyone recommend a regimen that might work? Has anyone had any experience that they’d like to share, good or bad?

Loads of thanks, here’s hoping.

@samuelmanual , do you have one of these places close to you :-

I’m assuming you’re UK-based.

Check with your GP/MS nurse to see if there is a GP referral scheme operating in your area. I was referred to a local gym that has equipment with wheelchair access and a trained instructor. We are a motley crew with a good selection of, mainly neurological, conditions (MS, MND, stroke etc.) who help each other out and are in no position to judge! All for £4.50 a time.

Ditto what Yaffle says =I received 8 FREE personal one to one hourly sessions in a gym to get me started. Organised by my MS nurse and the local hospital physio
