Patients of all ages and with many forms of heart disease benefit from the program, particularly if your medical history includes:

How the Program works

Bounce-Back patients attend three exercise sessions a week. Depending on the prescribed routine, these sessions may include walking on an indoor track, workouts in the exercise room, or supervised aquatics class. Patients receive information on nutrition, smoking, stress, obesity, and other risk factors.

Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation include:

  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Reduced shortness of breath and fatigue in people with heart failure
  • Increased endurance
  • Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Decreased emotional stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Increased quality of life
