In brief: Long term outcomes
Studies have shown that patients that complete 12 weeks of supervised cardiac rehabilitation, have an 11 fold decrease in recurrent events, i.
e. Heart attacks or need for stents/bypass surgery. Thus it is very important to the long term success of your initial treatment and should be done to completion.

In brief: Improve wellbeing
Cardiac rehabilitation is focused on improving functional capacity.
This is your ability to exercise and remain independent in life. After a cardiac event it expedites returning to "normal". Unlike "working out" it is a very specific approach of education, awareness, and supervised aerobic exercise program with the heart patient in mind. Recommended!
