Mount Merrion Community Centre
Heart 2 Heart opened in 2012 in Mount Merrion Community Centre. The classes and consultations take place in the Cypress Room located on the first floor of the centre. Lift access is available.
What happens when I call Heart 2 Heart?
If you have completed a cardiac rehabilitation programme you can commence the classes immediately. We will need a referral form from your cardiac rehabilitation professional – please see link below.
If you have not completed a cardiac rehabilitation programme we will need to complete an assessment. This will involve us identifying your challenges and setting goals with you. After this you will complete a short exercise test. This enables us to start your rehabilitation programme at the correct level.
What happens in the classes?
The start of each class your blood pressure will be measured. You will then be fitted with a heart rate monitor. This allows us to exercise you within your training heart rate range during the session. This means that we do not over or under exert you during the session.
You will then complete a warm up to allow the coronary arteries to fully dilate. After this you will complete six circuits. This is followed by a cool down which brings your heart rate back to where it started.
Classes take place on Mondays at 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 4pm and 5.30pm
