This program is good for anyone, but particularly those who have had:
- Heart Attack
- Bypass Surgery
- Chest Pain/Angina
Healthy Heart allows members to take ownership of their health and fitness while working to achieve these benefits:
- reduced cholesterol
- increased cardio function
- increased bone density
- increased flexibility
Under the supervision of Jim Carpentier, Assoc. Wellness Director, you will be using light weights, cardio machines and treadmills. Jim will serve as your wellness assistant during the Healthy Heart hours and provide blood pressure readings and appropriate exercise guidance. Jim also provides music of the day from his collection which includes Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, The Andrew Sisters, Big Bands and more.
