improving Heart health
Heart disease is still the biggest killer in Australia. If you are one of the millions of people at risk of heart disease, or have risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, or stress, then our Heart Health programs are for you.
There are 1.2 million hospitalisations each year due to cardiovascular disease.
Heart health goals
Each patient is different however our customised treatment programs for heart health focus on 3 main areas:
We will instruct you about the intensity level that’s safe for your heart condition. The correct exercise intensity is essential to providing a safe environment. Progressing your exercise intensity at the appropriate time will improve your heart functions.
All of Optimum’s Heart Health Programs include a resistance training component. Most people don’t realise that by strengthening your muscles, you’ll become more efficient in all of your movements. This enables your heart to function more efficiently.
There’s a proven direct relationship between excessive body weight and poor heart health. The more you weigh, the harder your heart pumps. Therefore, excess body fat places extra stress on the heart. Our program will address your weight loss goals through our exercise and nutrition plan.
