Help your clients after a cardiac event
Did you know that prior to the 1960’s, the prescription for those who suffered a cardiac event such as a heart attack or open-heart surgery was bed rest for up-to three months?
Today, we know that this is the worst thing to do. Exercise, education, and nutrition have become the new rehabilitation approach for the 21st Century and this includes you, the fitness professional.
