Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Heart Strong: Cardiac Pre-hab and Re-hab
Exercise keeps your heart strong and healthy. Regular exercise can prevent, manage and treat the symptoms of heart disease. Plus, it can lower your blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, help you lose weight and improve your sense of well-being.
Your heart is responsible for pumping blood to all parts of your body — 2.5 billion times by the time you are 65! If your heart isn't working properly, then you aren't working properly.
We can help you learn how to exercise safely to get your heart healthy again.

Our Heart Strong program targets 3 primary outcomes:
- Increased Happiness Quotient
- Our program will increase your energy level; reduce stress; lift your mood; improve your ability to undertake normal activities of daily living; increase your strength; reduce anxiety and symptoms of depression (common with many chronic diseases); and slow the rate at which many diseases progress.
- Lower Cholesterol
- Studies show that exercise is by far, the best way to increase your HDL (good cholesterol) which in turn decreases your LDL (bad cholesterol).
- Optimized Blood Pressure
- Blood pressure is one of the fastest health vitals to improve with exercise. A regular exercise program can lower your blood pressure within weeks.
