Sports and Heart Health

Baptist Health Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute

Exercise is an important component of maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. But there’s often an assumption that athletes, or physically active people, are not at risk of heart-related issues. Athletes are not immune. They can suffer from cardiovascular conditions at any point in their lives. Activity can range from mild to intense -- from the amateur to the marathon runner or professional athlete. It’s vital for every type of athlete to stay on top of their heart health.
