Why You Should Warm-up and Cool-down

It is really important that you add a warm-up and cool-down to every session you complete.


The aim is to gently increase the heart rate and circulation of blood throughout the body to help prepare the body and muscles for the session ahead and prevent injury.

Light Cardiovascular Exercises

We recommend that you complete 5 minutes of light cardiovascular exercise such as:

  • Slow jogging on the spot

  • Cycle on a stationary bike at a low intensity

  • Walk briskly around the home


A cool-down is just as important as a warm-up and allows the body temperature and heart rate to slowly reduce.

We recommended that you complete 2-5 mins of light-intensity cardiovascular exercise as above and go through the 5 stretches.

If you have any concerns or questions, please discuss these with the Exercise Physiologist as you are the only one who knows how it feels on your body, so you must communicate any concerns when they arise.

"When I joined [Transformed], I had been on a waiting list for Bariatric surgery for almost a year and had given up hope on most methods of weight loss.


But after signing up and meeting the team I felt so supported that I was willing to try. In 6 months I lost 40kg and have my life back."
