Cardiac Rehab.  It's more than just Exercise

Our Cardiac Rehab experts will work with you to create an individualized, step-by-step program designed to get your heart back in shape and improve the overall quality of your life. By building strength and endurance, you can safely and effectively overcome some of the physical complications associated with certain types of heart disease.

FITNESS FOR LIFE - It's more than just exercise.  It's EDUCATION too.

Our supervised exercise and education program will help build your strength and endurance. You’ll start out with an evaluation by a registered nurse and from there you’ll be participating in group exercise sessions that are specifically designed to keep you healthy, active, and living your life to the fullest.

Prairie Ridge Health is offering the Strong Women Program, a 12 week exercise program for middle-aged and older women twice a week at Prairie Ridge Health.

  • Sessions are ongoing, please contact our education department to learn more about enrolling in the next class.

The Strong Women Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, PhD, an associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The Strong Women Program is based upon years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of women of all ages. “Strength is a critical factor in living healthier, more active lives. Our research shows that a program of strength training not only improves bone density but reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms, and increases flexibility and strength,” states Dr. Nelson. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.

Class is limited to 10 students, with a minimum of 8, and the cost is $70 for 12 weeks with classes 2x per week.  To register contact Chris DeLapp, Education Coordinator at 920-623-1276 or via email atcdelapp@prairieridge.health.

You do not have to be super strong because there is always someone stronger than you are. Also, you do not have to be in top physical shape as the techniques taught are quick and to the point. The techniques are for women of all ages and only last between a second and a second and a half and it’s over. In this class, you will be put into simulated life-threatening situations and will be shown how to defend yourself and break out of them. Uniforms are not required. Recommended are loose clothes, shorts are acceptable in summer.
