A Healthy Heart is Within Reach! 

Healthy Hearts is a three-month program that promotes a heart-healthy lifestyle through movement. The program consists of small group classes that meet three days per week and incorporate cardiovascular, balance, and resistance training. Currently, the class meets at 11 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA.

The goals of the program are to provide the tools necessary for participants to learn how to set and achieve attainable goals that will assist them in learning to monitor and improve overall heart health. This program also serves as transition after completion of cardiac rehabilitation.

The YMCA’s trained and compassionate staff will provide support and education throughout the program. Healthy Hearts is free for members. Non-members can apply for Membership for All to assist with the $85 program cost. For more information, email Emily at
