There is a new video on the American College of Cardiology website which shows all the reasons why heart disease patients NEED to do cardiac rehab.

Are you on the fence about going to cardiac rehab?  If so, you need to see this video!  I have written previous posts about the importance of cardiac rehabilitation after a heart attack, bypass surgery, stent or diagnosis of heart failure (see Cardiac Rehab is Essential to Best Recovery).  Cardiac rehab is a medically supervised exercise program that shows you what types of activities are okay with heart disease.  It also addresses lifestyle modification like proper diet, stress management and quitting smoking.

There is so much more to cardiac rehab than just a treadmill or a stationary bike!  See for yourself by watching the video at the following link:
