LIFEWORx Cardiopulmonary Program

The LIFEWORx Cardiopulmonary and Vascular Program is ideal for anyone with a cardiovascular, pulmonary or vascular diagnosis, who is interested in supervised/monitored exercise. LIFEWORx is an exercise, nutrition, metabolic and educational program that is customized for you and professionally coordinated with your physician. Exercise physiologists, with ACSM clinical exercise specialist certification, will customize your exercise program using national protocols, clinical data and diagnostic tests. Safe and dynamic fitness programs are developed to help you achieve optimal health through comprehensive management of your chronic medical condition.

Educational programs and nutrition counseling are available to teach you strategies for risk reduction, lifestyle changes and management of your medical conditions.
