Hello I'd 1st suggest to replace the clutch hydraulic fluid completely, bleeding it out from the slave cylinder and keep topping up at the reservoir until you get fresh fluid out at the other end also check that the pedal pivot and master cylinder joints are well greased and all move freely if its still very heavy then the gearbox will have to come off to check the condition of the clutch itself however if the car hasn't been driven for a while and has sat then its possible the clutch will improve with use as it frees off so after bleeding the fluid it may be worth just driving it for 100 miles or so to see how it improves
