Helen is a Physiotherapist and Consultant Allied Health Professional with the NHS; she established Renaissance Health and Wellbeing in October 2012. The aim of the gym was to provide automated-machine gym options to enhance the health of people with slight to moderate mobility difficulties or those who find conventional gyms too challenging. In August 2013 Active Life came on board and Renaissance the Gentle Gym was founded. Active Life, with over 15 years experience in the field of GP Exercise Referral, has brought mainstream fitness to a facility that can offer both gentle exercise options and specialist care. Anyone requiring physiotherapy input can be booked to see Helen as part of their membership joining fee.
