If I do not have a cardiac condition can I still attend?
Yes, Karen has over 20 years experience working in cardiac rehabilitation but has also worked in medical areas looking after those who have respiratory conditions, survived cancer and those recovering from a critical illness. While you might be part of a group of participants with cardiac conditions as the exercise sessions are circuit based the exercises are individualised for you.
Why is it important for me to complete a cardiac rehabilitation programme?
The main benefit of cardiac rehabilitation is to reduce your risk of a further cardiac event through exercise and lifestyle changes. It will also improve your quality of life by improving your energy levels and helping you come to terms with what has happened. Remember heart disease is a progressive disease and needs to be managed. In cardiac rehabilitation your risk factors are addressed and we will help you address the required changes.
