While doctors may never agree on a “best” workout to improve heart health, they will all attest to the fact that fitness is a powerful and effective way of combating cardiac disease. Of course, exercise only works when a person is willing to commit to making it a routine.
Be accountable. People who keep track of their progress have a much higher success rate at sticking to a fitness routine. Find an app or online tool, such as the American Heart Association’s free Activity Tracker to track your progress or keep a monthly written log of what you’ve done. Personal trainers are also an effective, albeit expensive, way to keep accountable.
