What is Cardiac Rehab?

The Phase 2 Cardiac Rehab involves education and exercise sessions. During the exercise sessions, your heart rhythm & blood pressure are monitored. These sessions help you learn what kind of exercises you can do, how to do them safely, and help you develop your own exercise program that you can continue at home.

There are educational classes held every week to help you learn how to live with cardiac disease and ways to change unhealthy habits. We even provide healthy snacks!

The Phase 3 Cardiac Rehab program is free and available to those who have completed the Phase 2 Rehab program here at RFGH.
