What is Fitness for Breath?
Fitness for Breath is a respiratory exercise maintenance program designed as post-rehabilitation. It is not intended to replace rehabilitation, but instead provide a resource to continue your exercise routine. In the Fitness for Breath program, participants learn the importance of staying active for life and the health benefits of exercise.
