It's ideal for anyone with a medical condition who has been advised by a health professional to increase their levels of physical activity.
If you think it might be suitable for you, talk to your GP or Healthcare professional and ask for a Fresh Start Exercise Referral form to be completed and sent to our head office.
Once you've been referred, a team member will get in touch to arrange an initial appointment. You'll meet one of our Exercise Specialists, who will discuss your needs and give you guidance on appropriate exercise.
As you progress through the 12 sessions of your personal programme, you'll gradually increase your activity level, improving your fitness and giving you the confidence to carry on exercising after the programme has finished.
The Fresh Start 12 week programme is free and funded by the NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group for Bromley patients who meet the eligibility criteria agreed by local doctors and is set out below;
- Mild to Moderate Mental health disorders
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Cerebrovascular disease (CVA or TIA)

For those not meeting the NHS eligibility criteria, you are still able to attend Fresh Start or any of our other referral programmes at the concessionary cost of £5.10 per session.
