Whether you are transitioning from Cardiac Rehab or simply have a family history of heart disease, the Duke Health & Fitness Center can provide you with a safe and supportive environment. We recommend our Clinical membership for a more individualized and monitored approach to exercise. As a Clinical member you are assigned to an Exercise Physiologist, called a Lifestyle Counselor, who reviews your medical history, listens to your needs and concerns, works with you to develop short-term and long-term wellness goals, and then provides a detailed exercise prescription to get you started safely. Clinical memberships can also include blood pressure readings, heart rate checks, oxygen levels and other important vitals pre, during and post-exercise. If you are a Duke patient, this information will be electronically loaded in your medical chart.
