Fitness and Recreation

The fitness and recreation industry greatly benefits from physical and mental health first aid training provided by Madeleys First Aid Plus. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Participant Safety: Fitness and recreation activities involve physical exertion and potential risks. Physical first aid training equips fitness and recreation professionals with the skills to respond to injuries, accidents, or medical emergencies that may occur during workouts or recreational activities. They can provide immediate care, stabilize injuries, and ensure the safety and well-being of participants.
  2. Sports Injuries: The fitness and recreation industry often includes sports and athletic activities where participants may experience injuries such as sprains, strains, fractures, or dislocations. Physical first aid training enables professionals to assess and manage these injuries effectively, providing appropriate care and ensuring a safe environment for participants to engage in physical activities.
  3. Exercise-related Emergencies: Intense workouts or vigorous physical activities can sometimes lead to exercise-related emergencies such as heat exhaustion, dehydration, or cardiac events. Physical first aid training equips professionals with the knowledge to recognize the signs and symptoms of these emergencies, perform life-saving techniques like CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) when necessary. This training is critical in ensuring the well-being of participants during fitness and recreational activities.
  4. Mental Health Support: Engaging in fitness and recreational activities not only benefits physical health but also has a positive impact on mental well-being. Mental health first aid training provided by Madeleys First Aid Plus equips professionals with the skills to identify signs of mental distress among participants, such as anxiety, stress, or mood disorders. They can provide initial support, offer resources, and create a supportive environment that promotes positive mental health.
  5. Risk Management: Fitness and recreation professionals need to be skilled in risk management to prevent accidents and injuries. Physical and mental health first aid training enhances professionals' ability to assess potential hazards, implement safety protocols, and create risk management strategies. This training helps ensure the safety of participants, minimize risks, and promote a responsible and secure environment for fitness and recreational activities.
  6. Building Trust and Confidence: By receiving physical and mental health first aid training, fitness and recreation professionals gain confidence in their ability to handle emergencies and provide immediate care. This confidence builds trust among participants, as they feel reassured that their safety and well-being are prioritised. Trust and confidence in the professionals' competence enhance the overall experience and promote participant satisfaction.
  7. Wellness and Self-Care: Fitness and recreation professionals play a significant role in promoting overall wellness and self-care. Physical and mental health first aid training provides professionals with self-care strategies, stress management techniques, and resilience-building skills. By taking care of their own physical and mental well-being, professionals can serve as positive role models for participants, inspiring them to prioritize their health and well-being.

Madeleys First Aid Plus recognises the unique needs of the fitness and recreation industry and provides specialised physical and mental health first aid training to meet those needs. By equipping professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge, this training ensures the safety, well-being, and positive experience of participants in the fitness and recreation industry.

Our Courses

Voices of Trust and Success

I can’t believe how much I learned about mental health in just one day. The course is really interesting and very informative - Lou teaches in a way that enables plenty of interaction and discussion between the learners, breaking down any stigma people may have about talking about mental health issues. I now think very differently about how a person may be thinking or feeling, and I am mindful of their words and actions and how it could be a warning sign or a cry for help. Being a mental health first aider means I could make a difference to someone who is struggling. That is a massive and personal thing to me.

First Aid for Mental Health

Audrey Whyle, ArtShack

I have been singing her praises and we're already booked in for our First Aid at work and safeguarding training.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable People

Fearless Female Education Ltd

An excellent course that was informative and well taught. Louise did a brilliant job of explaining all areas of First Aid-what we needed to do and why which massively helped the learning experience and my ability to retain life saving information. I would highly recommend this course.

Emergency First Aid at Work

Katie Iles, The SeaChange Trust

From the start to finish Louise was informative, practical and interesting. With her extensive background and experience within the medical industry including A an E, she was able to pitch real scenarios at us regardless of the nature of our business or employment which made the whole day much more relevant. Very Highly recommended to anyone either refreshing or starting First Aid for the first time and I wouldn't hesitate to offer her and Madeleys First Aid Plus services to anyone who needs First Aid qualifications.

First Aid at Work

Phil Rowley, Rowley Racing

Louise came highly recommended for Mental Health First Aid training and after a chat with her, I quickly realised she was definitely the right fit for me and my team. Louise was efficient, patient (7 rather chatty women), friendly and tremendously knowledgable which made the course one of the best training sessions I have ever been on. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and nearly three weeks later, we are still talking about the training and more importantly, putting it into practice. I feel fortunate to have found someone who understood our needs and could deliver so effectively to such a diverse team. Keeping everyone's interest and getting all of us engaged is no meant feat and Lou made it look easy.

I am more confident to help if ever needed, who knew there was a “best side” for the recovery position! Very good information regarding the use of the defib machine, I’d be confident to use it if ever needed!
