Are you an athlete, or someone for whom exercise is, or has been, a major part of your life?
If so, please help with this survey to learn how Afib and its treatment affects the well-being of athletes. The survey is in collaboration with Rachel Lampert, MD, a Yale electrophysiologist.
Whether you are still exercising or have had to detrain, whether you still have Afib or have undergone successful treatment, with or without symptoms, we would like to hear about your experiences.
To learn more, go to: https://www.stopafib.org/newsitem.cfm/NEWSID/648
Please share this with family and friends or social media friends who might be interested in participating!
I have always trained. First jogging now on an elliptical machine about 4 times per week, 35 minutes.
Due to the Afib I have had to lower the intensity of the workout.
One day is better than the other, after the training I always feel better.
I am 78.
