Karyn Gallivan, MS, ATC, CSCS, NSCA-CPT, NASM-CPT, is a certified athletic trainer with over 25 years of experience in education, clinical rehabilitation, strength & conditioning and post-rehab training of patients with metabolic and orthopedic conditions. With training in cardiovascular and exercise physiology, Karyn works with a team of health professionals to provide individualized exercise programming and lifestyle change programs for cardiac rehab patients, as well as personal fitness training. Very often the key to success for cardiac rehab patients is addressing the challenges (and co-morbidities) that each patients presents with. In this regard, much of her time is spent addressing these challenges through all phases of the rehab process –including addressing co-morbidities with the patient and their family. Karyn works to train and educate the whole person using a balanced approach to design safe and effective programs that will strengthen "weak links" and lead to an enhanced level of health and fitness.
With international speaking experience, Karyn also spends much of her time teaching exercise physiology and rehabilitation to our future health professionals. She has completed doctoral studies in exercise physiology and educational leadership, and is a PhD Student–concentrating on strategies to bridge the gap between health care and the level of patient commitment, and long-term compliance that is necessary for these interventions to be successful. Karyn is delighted to share valuable insights she has collected from her vast experiences working with patients throughout all phases of cardiac rehabilitation.
