After experiencing back pain for a number of weeks, Jane consulted her doctor and whilst the back pain itself was unrelated to her heart, her doctor recommended a comprehensive health check-up nonetheless. This led to the discovery that Jane has significant calcification of her coronary arteries and recommended us to support Jane in transforming her exercise and lifestyle habits to minimise the risk of this turning into a more serious cardiac condition.
Our action plan
It was important for Jane that we worked within safe parameters, not putting her heart under any undue stress. We started with our Initial Assessment which provided the opportunity to feel connected to the wider team at CP+R that are working for her and to obtain a comprehensive list of insightful and important data that provides the essential foundation for successful rehabilitation. Most importantly, we talked through what living longer better specifically meant for Jane as there’s no point climbing up the ladder as fast as you can if the ladder is up against the wrong wall.
Then the CP+R magic happens! We rigorously and scientifically analysed the data, as knowledge = power. This enables us to meticulously and carefully evolve Jane’s bespoke health plan so that she would feel reassured, informed and inspired to make it happen. We then coached Jane through our 4 Pillar model each week which ensured we left no stone unturned in managing her health. Part of this as our attentive focus on resistance training, which was crucial in managing Jane’s musculoskeletal concerns having suffered with both knee and hip issues in the past.
Jane has shown outstanding commitment to her CP+R programme throughout her time with us and subsequently, has seen some fantastic results:
+ Her Fat Mass has reduced by 9.0 kg
+ Her Resting Heart Rate has reduced by 15 bpm
+ Her Total Cholesterol has reduced by 1.30 mmol/L
+ Her Muscle Mass has increased by 2.8kg
My cardiologist sent me up the road to 110 Harley Street and everything has been amazing ever since. I’ve been made to feel confident in exercising, which I wouldn’t have done alone given the diagnosis I had. I felt safe, happy and enthusiastic.
I think that feeling safe when you’ve been given a diagnosis and knowing that someone is really watching and monitoring everything is so very important, and to be encouraged in the right kind of way with humour and enthusiasm is fantastic. It’s been life-changing for me. I feel I’ve literally been given my life back.
