Exercise Prescription is an integrated process that has many significant areas of consideration. From age to environment to condition or disease to medication. An additional component to the successful prescription of exercise is cognitive and behavioral strategies.
Health behavior is often used synonymously with lifestyle, and aspects of lifestyle such as smoking, dietary and exercise habits are strongly related to health, life expectancy and heart disease. Lifestyle intervention, comprising systematic education in techniques to change health behavior, is essential for the implementing changes in lifestyle and is an important element in preventing heart disease and cardiac rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation units and programs intervene in patientsâ€™ lifestyles to motivate and support them in changing their lifestyles long-term to improve their overall health.
