Cardiac Rehabilitiation Program

This is a maintenance program designed for individuals with heart, stroke and hypertension issues as well as those who suffer from diabetes or fibromyalgia. One on one attention is given in a group setting. Everyone begins with a warm up routine, prescribed cardio and strength exercises in the fitness center followed by a cool down and stretching exercises.

Program director Phyllis Drescher brings over 20 years of experience in the field, has a masters degree in exercise physiology and is certified in personal training.  She works closely with several cardiologists and a team of trained cardiac rehab instructors to bring the best possible care and attention to all of our participants.
