Good Boost provides a flexible approach to supporting you with your muscle or joint pain through gentle aqua and land based exercise rehabilitation classes.

Using information provided about your unique muscle or joint condition, sessions are individually tailored to allow you to progress through your exercises at your own pace and have been built by experts in order to reduce pain and improve your strength and mobility.

The sessions last between 30-60 minutes (site dependant) and consist of a 10-minute warm up followed by a series of 3-4 minute individual exercises, with fun group activities in-between in order to maintain a comfortable body temperature. Both group and individual sessions are available (please check at your leisure facility).

You will be given your own easy-to-use waterproof computer tablet during the session which will display your personalised exercises with clear animated diagrams. Your Good Boost facilitator will be in and around the pool throughout the session to support and guide you.
