Award-winning exercise service

At Belong we have an award-winning exercise service. Each village has a specialised exercise studio which is run by a highly qualified Exercise Specialist who has experience working with older people. The Exercise Studio has adapted exercise equipment and the very latest software, harnessing virtual reality to support rehabilitation. and use of this facility is supplemented by regular exercise sessions held within the village venue; these classes are a focus for falls prevention exercises and promoting independence through exercise, as well as providing general exercise classes.


Free for all household residents

Everyone who moves into a Belong village household for 24-hour support (including nursing care) is assessed by the exercise specialist and offered a personalised exercise or rehabilitation programme, designed with a view to improving wellbeing and meeting any specific goals. Where appropriate, our Exercise Specialists work very closely with NHS rehabilitations teams to ensure the very best possible care. Access to the exercise studio and one-to-one sessions with our exercise specialists are included within Belong’s care and support fees.


Open to the public

Belong also offers personalised exercise programmes to its apartment residents and members of the wider community, enabling local people to take advantage of the advanced facilities in its exercise studios. The team liaises with local GPs and other health professionals to ensure exercise programmes are safe and tailored to individual health and wellbeing needs. As well as mobility and movement needs, we regularly accept referrals from GPs for health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, high-cholesterol, arthritis and mental health. For pricing, please contact your local village; see contact details below.
