The centre is equipped with aerobic and resistance exercise equipment to meet all of the needs of each individual. For individuals enrolled in the cardiac rehabilitation program, we monitor electrocardiogram during each workout. We also monitor blood pressure before, during and after exercise, as needed.
The center also offers comprehensive metabolic fitness and body composition testing. Among the services offered are measurements of VO2 max, or maximum aerobic capacity, during treadmill or bicycle exercise. For those needing to lose body weight, metabolic testing provides very accurate measurement of caloric expenditure at rest and during exercise. Body composition can be assessed with bioimpedance analysis or anthropometrics. An important feature of this testing is that a clinical exercise physiologist will go over the results and plan a personal exercise program that can be carried out at the clinical exercise center or at home.
