Wellness Programs and Clinically Directed Weight Loss for a Healthier Heart

The Heart Center* Cardiac Wellness Program provides patients who have been treated for heart disease and those at risk for developing a heart condition with comprehensive wellness services, including basal metabolic rate testing, designed to improve health and reduce risk for cardiac events.


Your Basal Metabolic Rate

At The Heart Center Cardiac Wellness Program, we offer basal metabolic rate (BMR) testing on specialized equipment to measure your individual caloric requirements at rest. Our specialists factor in age, weight, height and gender to determine your personal rate. BMR data provides details on the number of calories you need to eat to maintain your weight without exercise.

Helping You Have a Healthier Heart

Once we determine your BMR, our dietitians and exercise physiologists craft a personalized diet and exercise program to help you lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle. The goal of this comprehensive wellness program is to reduce your risk of heart attack and cardiovascular disease and improve your overall wellbeing.
