Please be aware that the videos posted here AND those for purchasing are ONLY for those who have either been through a formal cardiac rehabilitation programme, or have been assessed by a specialist cardiac nurse or other cardiac professional.

I have now posted new videos, which when done regularly, will improve the strength and tone of your upper body, legs and abdominals.  To view CLICK HERE

These exercises are based on exercises done in a Phase IV cardiac rehabilitation setting, and will be graded according to intensity.

If you have recently had a cardiac event such as a Heart Attack or Bypass then these exercises ARE NOT suitable for you.

Please go to the article ” Recovery after a Heart Attack” and complete the 12 week exercise guide first.   You should also during this time be offered the opportunity of taking part in some form of cardiac rehabilitation.  If you are not then ask your GP to refer you.
