Experimental: Remote Cardiac Rehabilitation
Following a 2-week ramp-up period, participants will attend group exercise sessions, remotely delivered in their homes, 3 days per week for 45-minutes over 12-weeks led by a live-interactive health coach. There are 4 exercise session types with different modalities: Session A: 75% aerobic, 25% resistance; Session B: 25% aerobic, 75% resistance; Session C: 50% aerobic, 50% resistance; and Session D: Exercise games (mix of modalities). Each participant will rotate through a 5-week set of exercise sessions (20 sessions) twice over the 10-weeks of group exercise period.
Behavioral: Remote Cardiac Rehabilitation
Participants will engage in a ramp-up period (weeks 0-2) where participants will attend 1-on-1 live, remote in-home exercise sessions (20-35 min./session, 3-days/wk.) delivered by a health coach via telehealth video conferencing. Participants will be provided a tablet computer and a small set of equipment. Following the ramp-up period, participants will be asked to attend live, in-home, group-based exercise sessions (weeks 3-12, 3-5 participants/group, 45-min, 3-days/wk. minimum). Sessions will be offered 4-days/wk. in the afternoons and early evenings allowing participants to select the most convenient 3 days per week to attend. Sessions will include a variety of dynamic aerobic and anaerobic (resistance) exercises with a target heart rate corresponding to 60-75% of VO2peak. In the group-based exercise sessions, participants will be able to see, hear, and verbally interact with the health coach and the other participants, allowing for supervision and encouraging social support.
