Exercise Stress Test
An exercise stress test is required for those with heart disease and/or at the discretion of the referring physician. 

  • If necessary, we will help you set-up a cardiologist-supervised exercise stress test.

This exercise stess test is used to assess each participant’s physical condition and allows us to prescribe individualized exercise programs.

  • The exercise stress test will be repeated at various times throughout the program to monitor progress.
