Join us for Workout Wednesdays
Phase 3 Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab are exercise programs for patients with heart and lung conditions. Before COVID-19, these patients came to Lake Regional rehab gyms for regular supervised workouts. When the pandemic made in-person gathering unsafe, Lake Regional Cardiopulmonary Rehab team members innovated and launched free "Workout Wednesdays" on Facebook Live.
These 30-minute, low-impact workouts provide patients with motivation and encouragement to stay active at home. Participants also can connect with one another by posting comments.
"It's been good for our patients to stay connected to a healthy routine, and it's been good for us to be able to continue supporting them and to see their positive comments," says Jody Corpe, E.P., Lake Regional Cardiopulmonary Rehab manager.
"Workout Wednesdays" are posted on facebook.com/lakeregional at 2:30 p.m. each Wednesday. You also can find a playlist of past videos at lakeregional.com/cardiacrehab. Anyone is welcome to view the videos.
Always talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise routine.
