Cardiac Rehabilitation service in Brighton, UK
I deliver cardiac rehabilitation classes in Brighton and the surrounding area. I am highly specialised in working with clinically vulnerable clients with chronic disease such as coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, etc.
What happens in a Cardiac Rehabilitation class in Brighton?
The class lasts about 50 minutes and consists of a 10-15 minute progressive warm-up, followed by 10-15 bodyweight exercises performed as part of a cardiovascular circuit that is designed to increase heart rate and breathing to moderate intensity.
These exercises are repeated up to 3 times. The circuit is then followed by a relaxing cool-down that consists of slow graceful movements that are adapted from “Tai Chi Qigong” which combines deeper, slower breathing with a sequence of movements.
Heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration are all lowered as a result of these exercises. The class ends with stretches for all of the major muscle groups to help maintain flexibility and mobility.
