"Pulmonary Rehabilitation Exercise /Fitness classes"

About: Bassetlaw / Cardio pulmonary rehab service

(as the patient),

Several folks met and spent two hours on guided exercise and listening to talks. The sessions ran for 6 weeks at twice a week. They were lead by a physiotherapist from the respiratory team and a rehabilitation assistant. We were supervised and guided, enabling us to improve both strength and stamina. We used equipment and also some free standing exercises.
