A new exercise studio in Nether Poppleton is specialising in working with clients to help manage their mental health and also working with individuals who are recovering from serious illnesses such as cancer. This will be alongside a series of standard programmes targetting weight loss, increasing fitness, toning and more besides.
Managing Director of Complete Life Fitness, Stephen Morrison obtained a Master’s of Pharmacy from the University of Bradford. His passion for helping those with long-term medical conditions, combined with his interest in the positive benefits of exercise, led him to qualify as a personal trainer before specialising in exercise referral – working alongside GPs to use exercise as part of patients’ treatment plans. He has since further qualified in Cancer Rehabilitation and Exercise, and leads exercise sessions for patients who have or have had cancer.
“It is amazing how many positive effects exercise can have for cancer patients, whether they are on or off treatment,” says Stephen. “Everyone should think about the potential benefits they could enjoy from a specialised exercise programme as a complementary part of their first-line treatment plan.”
As well as specialist cancer programmes, Stephen remains involved with York’s exercise referral schemes and works alongside York MIND to support people with mental health conditions, using exercise as part of their treatment. CLF works with both patient referrals from medical professionals and self-referred clients who access their wide range of services directly. Regardless of the route they arrive, every client receives the same high standard of service from Stephen and his expert team.
“Our knowledge, qualifications and experience mean we are the perfect fit for clients from all walks of life. Whether they are looking to have one-to-one personal training; meet likeminded people in small, sociable classes; or access one of our specialist services, I am proud of the commitment and dedication CLF has to using exercise to improve everyone’s quality of life for the better.”
