Paul


We started helping Paul in 2014 after his cardiologist referred him to us.

Following a diagnosis of hypertension and the insertion of two percutaneous coronary interventions, Paul was experiencing heart palpitations and breathlessness on exertion leading to high stress and anxiety, particularly around exercise.

Our work with Paul predominantly involved increasing both his physical ability and his confidence. We began by assessing his baseline statistics, in particular his cardiovascular markers, in order to safely prescribe as well as monitor and track performance. We also reviewed his cardiovascular capacity and educated him on how to effectively prepare his body for exercise. We then prescribed a clinical programme to gradually improve his cardiovascular capacity.

Throughout Paul’s journey, we provided consistent support and feedback on his performance against our plan. For him, it was the combination of the detailed prescription and the emotional support that was crucial to his recovery.

Georgie


Georgie suffered a myocardial infarction and cardiac arrest in October 2018. She was left with an ejection fraction of 39% and was placed on a number of cardiac medications. Georgie joined CP+R in February 2019 with the cause of her MI still unclear, still experiencing fatigue and breathlessness and really unsure how to exercise safely and effectively.

She did fanastically well training twice per week in clinic and a year later Georgie has seen a significant increase in her strength and fitness levels with a concomitant decrease in fatigue and breathlessness.

Moreover, Georgie now has the confidence to perform both resistance and cardiovascular exercise and is now able to plan the next stages of life with University on the horizon this year!

  • David, myocardial infarction

    “I had a heart attack followed by a triple bypass operation. This of course was a shock but especially as I thought I was a very fit sixty year old. Football twice a week as a young man, three marathons, tennis and gym four times a week.

    During my first CP+R session I was checked over most thoroughly. Not just blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol etc., but also every body measurement possible and photographs of my posture. Since that time I have been working one-to-one with my clinical exercise specialist. I very much enjoy it and the results have been terrific. Cholesterol down, weight down, fitness up, even body shape improvement.

    All the CES’ are brilliant, not just in sessions but with constant encouragement and enthusiasm.

    One big plus is diet. The difference in what I eat now as to what I was eating in the first weeks has been transformed. I now have a healthy balanced diet of which I can really feel the benefit.”

  • Adrian, hypertension

    “When my (somewhat fearsome) cardiologist referred me to CP+R, I confess that it felt rather like being given the adult equivalent of an after-school detention. 

    As so often in life, perception has turned out to be very different from reality. My experience of CP+R has been of very professional, personalised care focusing very much on my needs – rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. 

    Two years on, attending three times a week, I feel as if I have more energy, am a lot more supple, slimmer – and, best of all, my cardiologist was slightly less fearsome when I last saw her. Indeed, she has ‘signed me off.”

  • Jane, hypertension and musculoskeletal problems

    “Having had an arthritic hip and problems with my knees and some years of immobility, I had my hip replaced and then had a diagnosis of coronary artery disease.

    My cardiologist recommended that I go to CP+R to improve my mobility, blood pressure and general fitness. I have now been with CP+R for over a year and the difference in my health is amazing.

    As well as the two sessions I attend at Harley Street each week, I walk over 10,000 steps every day. I have lost weight and my energy and enthusiasm for life have returned.”
