Type One Fitness in Norwell Announces Cardiac Rehabilitation Continuance Program

Norwell, MA, April 20, 2023 -- Type One Fitness of Norwell has expanded their programs to include a Cardiac Rehabilitation Continuance Program (CRCP).

CRCP is designed for adults transitioning from medical cardiac rehabilitation who want to continue with personalized sessions supervised by Type One’s on-staff Exercise Physiologist at their state-of-the-art facility at 386 Washington Street.

“Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Continuance Program offers many benefits that can improve an individual’s health and quality of life,” explained Tyson Sunnerberg, co-founder of Type One Fitness, the first athletic center that is open to the public with a focus on diabetes wellness, is dedicated to building a culture of good health, well-being and inclusion.

CRCP is a comprehensive therapy combining prescribed exercise training, cardiac risk factor modification, education on heart health, and diet and nutrition counseling. The program at Type One Fitness helps individuals recuperate, build confidence and get stronger after surgery or medical treatment for a heart issue, as a transition from a medically supervised program. They accept direct referrals.

After their initial hospital supervised cardiac rehab, CRCP at Type One Fitness helps individuals with continuous progression regardless of age, gender or whether their heart issue was minor or major. They offer long-term and continuing education and care for to help individuals stay heart-healthy and on the right path.

Type One Fitness' CRCP is available to individuals who’ve had some kind of problem with their heart including heart attack, heart failure, use of a ventricular assist device, angina, heart or heart-lung transplant, heart valve repair or replacement, coronary artery bypass graft, and coronary artery angioplasty with or without stent placement.

Working in a group setting and utilizing specialized equipment, Type One’s CRCP staff will provide supervision in the gym as individuals start out at their prescribed target heart rate range and rate of perceived exertion, to meet their needs and goals. As they complete more sessions and gain confidence and endurance, the staff will be there to help them gradually progress by increasing the intensity and/or duration of exercise according to their new fitness level.

Vital signs including blood pressure and heart rate will be taken pre and post workouts. The built-in pulse sensors on our advanced exercise machines will help provide real-time heart rate monitoring during an individual’s workout.

Type One also offers an InBody biometric screening, which is a body composition analysis and an optional part of their intake process.
“Essentially, we offer CRCP with no start or end date, allowing participants to join and extend sessions at any time, work at their own pace and remain enrolled for as long as they choose,” explained Sunnerberg. “Individuals of all ages with heart conditions can benefit from Type One's program.”
