Welcome to the Refit for Life rehabilitation program for transplant recipients.

This is a 6-month exercise plan designed to help you get active again after your transplant. The toolkit is made up of 4 x 6-week programs and ends with a lifetime maintenance plan.

What does our program include?

A short and simple walking program to get you moving again. Includes some basic mobility exercises to loosen things up for the upcoming modules.

An interval walking program building your cardiovascular fitness.  Includes an introduction to some basic strengthening and toning exercises as well as some stretching exercises.

Longer duration walking intervals as we start to increase your cardiovascular fitness.  An introduction to full body strengthening and stretches of the major muscle groups.

Walking program with increased intervals of up to 35 minutes duration.  Includes a complex full body strength and toning program, with relevant stretches.

A maintenance program for life which includes 2 days of strength and toning exercises and 3 days of cardiovascular exercise recommendations as per the Exercise is Medicine guidelines.

If you have already taken the first steps of moving again after your transplant, you may want to start this program from Module 2. Email refitforlife@wtgf.org with your motivation and we will move you ahead to Module 2.

Have you got the all clear?

Before you register for this rehabilitation program, you must get the all clear from your Health Care Professional. You will be asked to sign a declaration in the registration process confirming that you received medical clearance to commence this program.

Being Assessed?

When starting the program you will be asked to complete a Self Assessment Questionnaire. It is helpful (but not mandatory) to work alongside a Sports Therapist (Physiotherapist, Biokineticist, Personal Trainer etc.) who will be able to carry out more specific tests and assessments throughout the program. Download the self-assessment questionnaire form here, so you can see in advance what measurements and tests are being requested.
