At the start of 2018, the Sussex-based Sussex Health Care announced that it would be opening a new gym for their elderly and disabled residents based in Sussex or near the city. The facility is also welcoming towards elderly living at home and other community members that have cognitive disabilities. The gym was established in West Sussex, near Horsham.
The vision for the gym was straightforward. The Sussex Health Care wanted it to be highly efficient and comprehensive to use. They wanted the latest designs and improvements as well a variety. The gym boasts free weights elliptical machines, stationary bicycles, underwater treadmills, as well hot tubs for hydrotherapy and a pool fitted with resistance currents. The members at the gym include experts in areas such a respiratory, neurology, and musculoskeletal. They work in a team to provide the visitors with a well-developed and efficient exercise plan that is also personalized to every visitor’s needs and limitations.
There are several programs available at the gym in West Sussex such as for mobility improvement, adults with cognitive disabilities, and more. The experts at the gym take on a holistic approach and focus on creating plans that are gentle on the person training but still provide enough to be efficient.
