Outdoor activities and physical exercise form an important part of the recovery programme at Twin Rivers. Participating in such activities helps promote physical fitness as well as giving clients a sense of self-fulfilment and achievement.
Twin Rivers Exercise Programme
Twin Rivers recognizes the importance of exercise as part of a recovery programme and introduces clients to physical exercise, weight training and how to train more effectively.
Clients at Twin Rivers go to the local Gym & Pool three times a week. Each visit is supervised by staff. On Tuesday afternoons, the clients have an opportunity to use the weights room, cardio equipment or go swimming. On Saturday mornings David runs a ‘step class and workout session’ followed by weights or cardio training.
Being located in Plettenberg Bay clients at Twin Rivers have access to a number of exciting and challenging local attractions. These include rock climbing, abseiling, horse riding, swimming with seals, deep sea fishing as well as less strenuous visits to The Plettenberg Game Reserve and Knysna Elephant Park.
Outward Bound Outdoor Adventure Programme
Twin Rivers runs courses through The Outward Bound’s Programme – designed specifically as part of the treatment programme to take clients out of their comfort zone and help them to improve their confidence and learn about the importance of teamwork.
