In the previous posts we have outlined what the LEAR Health Partnership Assessment involves. Please check our previous posts on this topic if you have missed them.
On the back of your assessment, you and your allocated Health Partner will have a better understanding of what your strengths and areas of development are. Between yourself and your Health Partner, a plan will be created for how to reach your health goals in the safest and most effective way. This plan will also consider your work/life commitments and time available to commit.
As an example, if your goal is to complete a 10km race in 3 months' time and you realistically have three hours a week to commit to your programme. Then you and your Health Partner may agree that a fortnightly sports massage, a fortnightly Physiotherapy session and two Hybrid Training classes per week would be a suitable option. This would allow for any niggles to be managed through the physiotherapy and the sports massage, and the classes would allow you to fit in the strength and conditioning alongside the running. The classes will be small so the areas that you and your Health Partner have acknowledged as areas for improvement will be specifically targeted here. You will also be given a personalised Home Exercise Program for those busy weeks when life gets in the way and you can’t make your sessions or for when you want to squeeze in an extra session from home.
We want you to think of the LEAR Personal Commitment Programme as a commitment to your health and as part of your ‘prescription’. We know that exercise is one of the most valued ‘medicines’ for your health and therefore committing to these sessions will improve your overall health. As your goals and health changes, as well as perhaps personal commitments we will adapt the prescription accordingly together with you. The programme you are given must be bespoke to you and your situation and needs and will therefore be re-evaluated when required.
This is all about YOU and optimising YOUR health and wellbeing in partnership with a degree level qualified Health Partner
