Heart Disease Exercise Program

A sedentary lifestyle is one of the major risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease. Participation in a daily exercise program benefits the heart and circulatory system by reducing risk factors, thereby decreasing the chance for a heart attack, a stroke, or a surgery. For older people, exercise promotes weight reduction, lowers blood pressure, lowers bad cholesterol (LDL), and raises good cholesterol (HDL). Moreover, studies suggest that exercise reduces inflammation in the arteries and helps keep blood vessels flexible and open, thus reducing chances of back pain. Research shows that newly diagnosed heart disease patients who participated in exercise programs were able to return to work faster, stronger, and better. Physical activity is one of the most successful means of reaching and maintaining heart-healthy levels of fitness and weight.
