Freddie is a Cardiac Rehab Exercise Specialist with several years of experience. He joined the Bounceback team in 2011 and has been crucial in the running and introduction of new community classes. Fred also brings his love of strength and conditioning to Bounceback.
Cardiac Rehab Exercise
Since completing BSc Sport and Exercise Science and BACPR certification, Fred continues to focus on improving his knowledge. He has always been aware of the importance of cardiac rehabilitation and prevention through his mother, Caroline Jones. Caroline works at the Royal Sussex County hospital as a cardiac rehabilitation sister. They share the same passion and enthusiasm to help others recover both mentally and physically through making positive lifestyle changes.
Alongside cardiac rehab Freddie has also worked with various weight management charities and companies. Most recently the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership where he worked alongside community nutritionists to delivery healthy lifestyle sessions. His wide ranging health interests really help class members adjust to new, healthy lifestyles.
Freddie is registered with REPS as a Level 4 Specialist Exercise Instructor and fully insured.
Outside of Work…
Freddie actively involves himself in playing and coaching sport, and has over 10 years experience in basketball. He has played at a variety of levels, while coaching in the community. He also holds head coaching positions at National league (Sussex Bears), County (Sussex) and University (University of Sussex) teams.
Helping local heart charities has become a real feature of Bounceback instructors. Fred recently completed the Three peaks Challenge (2013, 2014 & 2015), as well as the London Spartan Race (2012) and Sussex Heart Charity walks (1992-Present). 2014’s Three Peaks Team still holds records for the fastest non-services team, greatest amount raised, fastest B-team, and oldest team. Within the team were class members who had all suffered cardiac events, which made the achievement that bit extra special.
