“Trevor enjoys exercising in our friendly gym, he feels empowered to continue his fitness journey knowing that he is supervised by, and can continue to seek advice from, the Fitness Team.”

Tom, Fitness Instructor

Trevor, aged 74, was initially referred to Westbank in November 2016 to attend our Phase III Cardiac Rehabilitation programme, following a heart attack which resulted in him having three stents fitted. 

The 8-week programme involved working with an NHS Cardiac Nurse and one of Westbank’s Level 4 Cardiac Exercise Instructors. 

After completing the Phase III classes Trevor started to attend the Westbank, 10 week, Phase IV Cardiac Rehabilitation programme. Trevor continued to make great progress with exercises tailored to him. Upon graduating the Phase IV programme Trevor could see the positive change to his health, general fitness and strength, coupled with his increased confidence he went on to join the Westbank Gym.

In 2020, Trevor continues to be a regular visitor to the Westbank gym, and he books in every 3 months to have his exercise training programme reviewed to ensure he continues to make good progress. Following his exercise sessions, Trevor sometimes joins friends he has made through the gym for a catch-up and coffee in the Westbank Seedlings Cafe.
