  • Cardiac rehabilitation program

    Cardiac rehab machineThe cardiac rehabilitation unit is designed for individuals who have known heart disease, have had a cardiac event such as a heart attack or bypass surgery, or are at high risk for developing coronary disease. We work closely with each participant's personal physician and our goal is to provide each member with an individualized program of exercise and risk factor modification. The program is staffed by energetic, qualified graduate students from the Clinical Exercise Physiology masters program. In addition, our facility is equipped with emergency medical equipment should the need arise.

    Members receive periodic exercise evaluations, up-dated exercise prescriptions, monthly progress reports, and information about reducing coronary risk factors. They also have access to a wide variety of exercise facilities, including a 200 meter cushioned indoor tack, stationary cycles, a heated swimming pool, elliptical trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, and weight training equipment.

    Cardiac rehab track Primary program hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings from 3:30-5:45 p.m. With prior physician approval, members can exercise with the morning Adult Fitness program (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings from 5:00-7:00 a.m.).

    Rates are currently $320 per year or $190 for a 6-month membership. Spouses pay 1/2 the regular fee. Faculty and staff rates are also available.
