Restore Energy, Heartiness, Aspirations & Benchmarks

Fitness professionals are an integral extension of Phase III-IV cardiac rehab programs. We coach the client to move and perform better in their game of life, beyond their cardiac history, co-morbidities and risk factors. People don’t live to be safe and healthy; they live safer and healthier to live life to the fullest.

Our coaching transfers to real life outside the gym, and that’s why people seek out our services. So for those with a cardiac history, our goal is to fortify their body, mind and spirit, so that they CAN live, labor, work, caregive, play and compete with confidence, competence and automaticity in their environments of choice. We bolster their buffer, boosting their protective factors, while adding purpose to living life and enhancing all aspects of well-being.

In this course, Pat VanGalen will help you fine-tune your coaching skills, due diligence practices, intake info, screening/assessments and programming systems to optimize living life for this client. You’ll better understand the latest wearables in monitoring and tracking, along with networking and communicating with medical professionals.

Beyond FITT and Rx, case studies addressing common cardiac conditions, meds and co-morbidities will be presented, along with Pat’s 7 S’s approach to building resilience, durability and robustness for the long haul.
