Blood pressure is known as the silent killer as it typically produces no symptoms. One in five adults in Canada live with hypertension or high blood pressure. Luckily, exercise is a powerful medicine for hypertension. One bout of exercise can lower our blood pressure for hours while a regular exercise routine can help us maintain a lower resting blood pressure over the long term helping us maintain the health of our blood vessels. At LIVE WELL, our Clinic Exercise Physiologists have the training and expertise to create a custom exercise program to help you effectively manage your blood pressure.
If you are looking to prevent or manage high blood pressure we invite you to Be Our Guest and come to a free exercise session with a program customized for you.
