The exercise program helps increase muscle strength, flexibility, and endurance; improves blood circulation; and helps lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and body fat. Each individual exercises at his/her prescribed level according to their medical history and personal goals.
To increase awareness of all aspects of heart disease, education is an ongoing part of the program in which patients and family members learn how to modify lifestyles to reduce risk factors. Weekly classes on diet, risk factor recognition, stress awareness, psychosocial support, and medications are included in the program fee.
The energetic and caring atmosphere, coupled with the support of fellow patients and staff, promotes emotional and mental recovery. Participants are encouraged to accept the challenge of adapting new habits.
A referral from your physician is required in order to participate in the program.
