Do you feel uncomfortable in a traditional fitness environment?

The cardiac team exercise physiologist will provide you with a step-by-step introduction to ProActive's exercise equipment. You will also be taught how to monitor your exercise during your workout and follow through on your program. You will begin Cardiac Rehabilitation under close supervision of the staff using heart monitors. This supervision will decrease as your health improves and you gain the knowledge, understanding and confidence to advance your exercise. Our goal is to help you become an independent member of ProActive within three to five months. ProActive offers a variety of exercise equipment for all fitness levels.

Whether you are looking to relax after the stress of surgery or you struggle with arthritis pain, the team at Madonna ProActive can provide you with the right environment, equipment and education to help you succeed.

The real difference in our program is the integration of traditional and holistic approaches to a program that is individualized just for you. We recognize you as the driving force in choosing key areas that will impact your health.

Because we limit class size, you will have optimal personal attention to address your individual needs. This ratio is ideal for both your monitored exercise, as well as your risk factor education. We understand that accepting your diagnosis and making lifestyle changes isn't easy. We will work one-on-one with you to set goals and provide the support you need to stay on track.

Does insurance cover cardiac rehabilitation? 

It is a Medicare-approved program that covers a variety of diagnoses including myocardial infarction (heart attack), open-heart bypass surgery, heart valve surgery and coronary stent placement. The program will be covered by most private health insurance plans with a physician referral.
