Who we are
The Aberdeen branch was started in 2002 to provide support and help to people with AS and to develop and maintain a regular exercise programme. There are several physiotherapists who form a rota, however there are always two qualified physiotherapists in attendance on an evening.
Access to the Physiotherapy Departments hydrotherapy pool is also available for those who feel unable to take part in the exercise classes.
Maintaining an exercise regime is one of the most important things people with AS can do for themselves. And the classes are an ideal forum to help in developing an exercise regime that suits your condition and where advice can be sought.
What we do
Classes (gym and pool) are currently held on a Wednesday evening between 19.00 and 20.00, with a short break during the summer and over Christmas.
The classes include floor exercises, access to exercise machines and take the form of both cardiovascular and circuit workouts. The hydrotherapy pool session runs in parallel so you can decide on the night what your preference is.
To attend these classes you should be diagnosed with AS; at your initial attendance, you may be assessed by the physiotherapist in charge for your fitness to participate.
