Northbrook, IL 60062
I was a member of an outstanding team of healthcare professionals at a hospital based cardiopulmonary rehab program for almost 27 years. I was laid off and our department was closed when our hospital was bought. It is because of my strong belief that our clients benefited greatly from attending an organized program that I decided to open my own small wellness/fitness center. May 1st 2009 was the grand opening of Keep the Beat Wellness, Inc. I have clients ranging from stable post heart event, overweight, prediabetics, PAD, pulmonary disease, low functional capacity, and those who need guidance and support to make those necessary lifestyle changes. The facility is equipped with treadmills, ellipticals, physiosteps, airdyne bikes, rowers, free weights and a multi-person resistance training station. I also offer small yoga, tai chi and balance classes to name a few. An AED is on the premises. I truly love helping people make necessary lifestyle modifications and maintaining those accomplishments. My average age of clients is 70, ranging in age from 50 - 91. I love what I do and thank my members for allowing me to continue to be a part of their lives.
