Post-COVID rehabilitation

People who have recovered from a COVID-19 infection frequently experience long-term symptoms (long COVID).

These include:

Restoring fitness after a coronavirus illness

For sufferers of long COVID, we offer a special post-COVID rehabilitation program intended to improve and restore general physical capabilities. But if you are looking to specifically recover your athletic fitness after a coronavirus infection, this program is also for you.
