My name is Angela Hartley, and as a Cardiac Nurse and Exercise Coach, I realised that there was not much support out there for people with a heart condition once they'd been discharged from hospital or finished cardiac rehab. So, I decided to offer it to myself!
I started Healthy Hearties in 2014 after hearing the same concerns over and over that my hospital patients were having - they didn't know what to do next, they were scared, and they felt they had no one to turn to.
I started offering one to one programmes in my gym, and the feedback after just one or two sessions was AMAZING. They felt listened to; they felt their questions had been answered, and best of all, they felt they had the KNOWLEDGE to go out and exercise by themselves.
As a mum to two small children, I realised I had a limited number of people that I could help each week. So, I decided to move things online so that I could help more people get the same results that my face to face clients were having.
I want people with a heart condition to know that I'm on their side. I'm here to listen, answer your questions and make you feel SAFE.
That's what I'm here for - to help with all of the concerns that are swirling around your head.
I'm here to help you get on the right track and swim through the weeds of confusion to the other side where life is full of energy and fun! And we will do it bit by bit, as part of a team.
Nearly all of my Hearties come to me confused and unsure where to start, but after as little as one month they are back doing the things they love, and best of all, they have their life back.
Join the other successful Hearties, and I can help you get yours back too.
Yours in heart health,
