Beat It! Cardiac Health Program Our Cardiac Health Program is designed to guide you back towards full health, with our team of diet, exercise and cardiac professionals supporting you along the way.

With Coronary Heart Disease being the leading cause of death in Australia, ensuring you take the necessary steps to return to optimal health after experiencing a heart condition is vital.

Research has shown that gradually building up a regular exercise routine and improving cardiovascular fitness, along with following a healthy, balanced diet can have many positive effects. These can all contribute to improved recovery times.

Our bi-weekly, 8 week Cardiac Health Program has been developed in collaboration with the Heart Foundation, and kicks off with initial consultations with an Exercise Physiologist and a Nutritionist/Dietitian to understand your personal goals and determine your most effective treatment pathway. Throughout the program you will have the opportunity to participate in both individual and group exercise and education classes. Following completion of the program, you will be provided with opportunities to continue exercising at our Movement HQ fitness centre as a regular member, and / or sign up for local walking programs facilitated by Brellah in partnership with the Heart Foundation.

Patient-centred care is a key component of all Brellah programs, and we will ensure you are always included in your treatment options.
