HBPSM-Kickoff-flier-1

High blood pressure is often referred to as “The Silent Killer” because there are typically no warning signs or symptoms. High blood pressure is a key, modifiable, risk factor for both heart disease and stroke, which are two of the leading causes of death in the United States.

The YMCA’s Self-Monitoring Blood Pressure (SMBP) program is designed to help adults with high blood pressure lower and manage their blood pressure through healthy diet and exercise. This is a four-month program that focuses on regular monitoring one’s blood pressure through proper techniques, one-on-one consultations with a Heart Healthy Ambassador (HHA) twice a month, support and group-based nutrition education delivered on a monthly basis.

Goals of the program: 

  • Measure and record blood pressure, at least twice a month, to learn triggers that impact blood pressure readings.
  • Learn how to properly take your blood pressure.
  • Meet with a HHA twice a month to review blood pressure, goals, and health.
  • Learn nutrition for achieving a healthy blood pressure through attending monthly nutrition seminars.

Who Qualifies?

  • Must be at l8+
  • Be diagnosed with high blood pressure or currently taking medication for high blood pressure
  • Not have experienced a recent cardiac event
  • Not have atrial fibrillation or other arrhythmias
  • Not be at risk for lymphedema
