Within three weeks of leaving the hospital, phase two begins — a carefully monitored program of exercise and education, which includes nutrition counseling and coaching.
You can walk, pedal and lift weights under the supervision of trained cardiac nurses, therapists and exercise specialists in the comfort of our workout room.
Exercise and education classes are not open to the public, but your partner or caregiver is welcome to join.
We provide a group setting for cardiac rehabilitation—an energetic environment that keeps you motivated and creates friendships. The camaraderie is contagious, and even spouses get to know each other.
During group sessions, your exercises will be tailored to your diagnosis and fitness level. Each activity is designed to gradually increase your heart rate to a prescribed training level. A registered nurse and exercise specialist are present so you
can exercise with confidence.
As you work through the program, we'll update your doctor on your progress and let him/her know if we have any medical concerns.
