What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?

Cardiac rehabilitation (cardiac rehab for short) helps you get back to as full a life as possible after a cardiac event such as a heart attack, heart surgery or stent procedure.

Cardiac rehab gives you and your family the information, support and advice you need to return to everyday life. Cardiac rehab is a vital part of your long term recovery, so consider it as important as taking your medication. Research has shown that cardiac rehab can reduce your risk of having another heart event, being readmitted to hospital and has a positive impact on your wellbeing and quality of life.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Exercise Programme

Welcome to YOUR Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme. I am a Level IV Cardiac Rehabilitation Exercise Instructor and I will work closely with you to develop an individualised exercise programme to help you to achieve your aims.

The programme considerations are, primarily, safety and enjoyment. The programme will be hard enough so that you can feel that you getting fitter but within safe parameters that we will agree between us.

Main Conditioning Phase

    Maintain target heart rate & effort

Cooldown

    Gradually decrease heart rate and effort

Example Exercise Schedule

To get the full benefit of a cardiac rehabilitation exercise programme you will need to commit to exercising in some form at least 150 minutes each week, 5 sessions of 30 minutes on five occasions throughout the week. This can consist of supervised programmes with me, a Home Exercise Plan that we will agree for you and other forms of exercise such as walking and hobbies.

Client testimonials

 

Gyms are not my thing so Steve varies our training locations from my garden to the beach, cliff top to parkland areas. He keeps it fun but makes sure I am working hard enough so I get the full benefit. I just feel so much better now, thanks Steve
