You will be asked to attend an initial consultation at a time that’s convenient for you at Carmarthen, Llanelli or Ammanford Leisure Centre. The consultation will consist of an introduction to the scheme, tour of the leisure centre and health assessment.
Will I be exercising alone and how often do I attend the referral classes?
You will be exercising with others in a friendly environment in group-based sessions throughout the 16-week programme. Those who are referred will be encouraged to attend two sessions a week.
