My DH started cardiac rehab on Monday, 9-17-12. The plan is 3 times a week for 12 weeks. It is about 45 minutes from our house and each session is between 1 and 1 1/2 hours. He has been going Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, early in the mornings when it is not so busy there.
I was a bit skeptical, the first day, when I saw this trainer! But then I heard the story - he had a bet with a client that the client could not lose a certain amount of weight by a certain date. Trainer lost bet so client got to "dress" him and picked out Richard Simmons costume. Trainer had to wear it all day.
It is a very nice facility and stays very busy with cardiac rehab on one side and public memberships across from them. There are lots of different exercise machines to use.
We had been walking on our street but yesterday we took our "before" surgery walk and did really well, I think. Our best time before was 33 minutes for 2.03 miles and this was only 2 minute slower!!
