Going to the gym while claiming PIP

If a physio has advised that I strengthen my legs at the gym to help with walking and standing again, does that mean that I am mobile enough that I would probably not qualify for PIP?

    Hi there 

    No it doesn't the physio will take a long time to see any significant improvement for a start 

    Do you get pip mobility currently? 

    You only need to report if it significantly improves your ability to walk and mobilise safely , reliably and repeatedly and distances further than you have been awarded pip for
