We offer a comprehensive education and exercise program designed for people who have heart disease, particularly those recovering from a cardiac event. When room available, referrals will be accepted for prevention and require two of the following diagnoses: hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, or diabetes.
The program is divided into two parts. Phase 1 is an 8-week mini education session followed by a 1 -1.5hr exercise session of cardio including use of the indoor walking track, followed by resistance training exercises at Motivations gym. Each participant receives an individualized exercise prescription; therefore we need a recent medical assessment and exercise stress test before the start of Phase I.
Core Education sessions are open to anyone and run on the first Thursday of every month from 1:00-2:30pm facilitated by several Health Care professionals.
- Risk, recognition, and reduction
- Diet for a healthy heart
- Impact Presentation
Phase 2 is an 8-week home based program including weekly contact with the program nurse.
Our program follows guidelines developed by:
- Canadian Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation
- American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation
- American College of Sports Medicine.
