The Activ 4 Life Program is specifically designed for maintenance and recovery with chronic illness and suitable for anyone who is simply looking for a safe place to exercise. It has been established to fill a gap in today's fitness and health injury.
Everyone knows that you should exercise and you have probably had your physiotherapist, specialist and family doctor say this to you before. The problem is finding a safe place where there is qualified supervision and in an environment with like minded people dealing with the same roadblocks to better health.
