Cardiac rehabilitation program

Our cardiac rehabilitation program works in collaboration with the Joondalup Health Campus to provide our clients with a holistic rehabilitation program incorporating both health education and exercise.

We offer a program that focuses on promoting lifetime maintenance for cardiovascular health in which physical fitness and additional risk-factor reduction are emphasised.

What is cardiac rehabilitation?

A cardiac rehabilitation program provides a supervised environment to safely increase activity/exercise levels and assist the client in achieving the following benefits:

  • improved physical fitness;
  • improved heart strength;
  • weight loss;
  • reduced blood pressure;
  • improved stress management; and
  • reduced risk for future heart problems.

Who benefits from the program?

A cardiac program benefits clients who have experienced:

  • a heart attack;
  • chest pain or angina;
  • angioplasty or stent procedure;
  • bypass surgery;
  • heart valve surgery; or
  • heart failure.

Program structure

Clients can attend two exercise sessions every week for eight-weeks to focus on increasing physical fitness and improving strength and endurance through a series of prescribed aerobic exercises, stretches and resistance training.


Prior to commencing a program, all clients will need to obtain a referral from a doctor stating that they are medically stable and able to commence a supervised exercise program.
