An Introduction to SMILE Cardiac Exercise Class : RBWM


Hi I’m Lynn Warner. I’m the Chairman of THROB. THROB is The Heart Rehabilitation Organisation Of Berkshire. We are a registered Charity supporting people in Berkshire and beyond who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle following coronary heart disease and other cardiac problems. THROB currently supports 28 exercise classes a week across Berkshire. 8 of these are in the Royal Borough. All classes are run by B.A.C.R approved instructors and more instructors are being trained every year so classes are available to new areas. Our classes are currently Bracknell, Burnham, Langley, Maidenhead, Windsor, Winkfield and Wokingham. THROB is a group of peole just like you. We formed in 1991 with just one class a week and have been working together, not simply to recover from heart disease, but in many cases to become healthier and happier than we were before we were ill. You really can enjoy life after heart problems. Throughout our fund raising acivities members of THROB provide practical support for local hospitals like St Marks, Heatherwood and Wexham Park and to doctors and nurses working with heart patients like us. There are regular social events where you can enjoy the company of other THROB members, friends and supporters. We publish a quarterly newsletter to keep you informed, entertained and amused. If you break a bone, injure a muscle or joint you will often be referred for physiotherapy, THROB and our members believe we also need physio for our hearts too. We also support community projects covering all age groups to assist people and families that are at risk of coronary heart disease. You can find out more from our website www.throbrehab.org.uk. Or just search in heart rehabilitation Berkshire and you’ll find us.
