NMC’s Neuromuscular Gym is a purpose-built facility which is currently the only one in Europe! Previously, NMC was only able to provide active exercise as part of physiotherapy appointments, which was restrictive. The gym features more than a dozen items of accessible equipment to suit all needs, including resistance and cardiovascular equipment and can accommodate multiple users at any given time.
There is a Physiotherapist on duty, providing the physical support to enable individuals to access the equipment, and monitoring all outputs including cardiovascular levels and respiratory function before, during and after exercise. There are 420 gym slots available each month in the gym, and we operate an online booking system as well as an induction prior to using the gym for the first time.
The Benefits of NMC’s Gym
The benefits of accessing the gym are vast; in addition to improved cardiovascular function, individuals are reporting that they are physically able to do much more, and that their overall wellbeing is being positively impacted as a result of being able to participate in exercise.
Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly:

improves your bone health
reduces your risk of high blood pressure (hypertension), coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some cancers
helps manage your weight and reduces your risk of becoming obese
reduces anxiety and depression, and helps prevent mental health problems
boosts your mood and wellbeing
