There is a large exercise & fitness centre with specially trained staff to work with people at risk of, or recovering from heart and stroke events.

The ‘Heart & Stroke Centre’ also has conference and training rooms with video conferencing facilities allowing the institute to link in with universities, hospitals, and training centres around the world. Training rooms are equipped to deliver life-saving courses in CPR, Defibrillation, Stroke recognition & Choking resuscitation to a wide variety of groups, from allied health care professionals, community groups, through to mums & toddler groups.
