There are around 7.6 million people living with a heart or circulatory disease in the UK and every three minutes, someone in the UK dies from a heart or circulatory disease.
This CPD workshop will give you a better understanding of how physical activity can reduce the risk of heart and circulatory diseases by up to 35%. It will also cover the risks versus benefits of exercise for those living with heart disease and guide you on how to teach exercise safely within your scope as a group exercise instructor.
This CPD workshop will give an overview of:
Coronary heart disease
High blood pressure
We will also review helpful, evidence-based information to share with your clients and develop ways to help them make physical activity part of their daily life.
The afternoon session will be practical, looking at ways to progress, regress and adapt exercises for individuals in your classes. You will be asked to demonstrate exercises individually and as part of a group, although this is not formal assessment, we do encourage observation and peer support.
The aim of this CPD is to give you the knowledge and confidence to work within your scope of practice and know when to refer to a medical professional and when it is not safe for people to participate in your group exercise classes. Please note this is not a cardiac rehabilitation CPD.
