This is an ideal exercise prescription for stable “low risk” cardiac patients. The cardiac rehab fitness specialist guides these clients through the required lifestyle changes.

Improve Heart Patients Health

These elite personal trainers can help improve heart patients health and enable them to live a more healthy active life after a heart attack, stroke, heart surgery or have a long-term heart problem such as heart failure.

Cardiac rehab can also help individuals return to daily living in a far timely manner. To help prevent future heart problems, improve the quality of life, and be healthier, it is best to start a cardiac rehabilitation program while the heart patient is still in the hospital. Or begin the cardiac rehab program soon after having treatment for a heart problem or attack.

Four Phases of Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac rehab has four phases. Typically a Physician will define an exercise prescription. The prescription gives Infofit’s cardiac rehabilitation specialist team guidelines for the duration, frequency, and intensity of the fitness program. This prescription will be based on the heart patient’s medical condition and fitness level.

Heart Patient’s Regain Confidence

Resistance training with elastic bands, weights, or body weight training will help the heart patient regain the confidence and physical strength and to do daily tasks. Resistance training will give the most benefit from a cardiac rehab program.

Before considering a resistance-training program, it’s advised that you first participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program for 2 to 4 weeks. The recovery speed all depends on the individuals age, health, and whether other health conditions are involved that may slow recovery. A younger person with no other health problems will likely improve more quickly than an older person who is in poor health.

Depending on the heart patients condition and how their response is to rehab,  they may stay in a particular phase or alternate back and forth among the various phases. There is no set length of time the cardiac patient must stay in a specific phase.

Aging is inevitable… good healthy recovery is optional

Aging is inevitable, and good healthy recovery is optional. There is little a physician, personal trainer or pill can do for your state of health and happiness as you age, than the power of will to do it for yourself. By taking control of your health and fitness options, and willing to educate and empower yourself to make informed decisions, you have “set the stage” for daily success.
