Thanks RiseUP! … A colleague wrote: ”I had been blessed with a low heart rate — or so I thought. During my last physical, the nurse commented that I had the pulse rate of a marathon runner. When I admitted to being lazy when it comes to exercise, she must have alerted the doctor because the next thing I knew, I was being wired up for an EKG. The following week, I had an appointment with a cardiologist; and then the tests began. I was scared to death and wanted to talk to someone who could answer my questions and calm my nerves. I remembered that RiseUP has Health Coaches so I made a call and had a long, reasurring chat with a wonderful, knowledgeable and compassionate human being. My coach provided me with the information and support that I needed. She called after my echocardiogram and stress test and has me convinced that my doctor’s orders to exercise regularly would be something I could fit into my busy schedule.”
