Heart disease is the leading cause of death of men and women yet the number one preventable disease. I would like to introduce myself just to let you know that you are getting some great information from a trusted expert. My name is Diamond Fernandes and as a cardiac physiologist, I absolutely love to help people prevent and reverse heart disease.


I graduated from the University of Calgary with a degree of Science in Exercise and Health Physiology in 1997. I’m a certified Clinical Exercise Specialist through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), member of the Canadian Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation (CACR), American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP), and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.


I have been involved in cardiac health for over 15 years now. It is my passion to help you. Where does my passion come from? My father has been living with heart disease since his first heart attack at the young age of 38.  Unfortunately, his brother, my uncle was not so lucky and passed away from a massive heart attack at 42 years old.


I have made it my personal mission to find out everything I can to ensure my father and the thousands of other are living well with heart disease.


My Journey started with working for the Cardiac Wellness Institute of Calgary. From there I was recruited to go to Dubai, UAE and start a cardiac rehabilitation program and also ended up in Kelowna, Canada to manage their cardiac rehabilitation program. Now I am living my passion with a great team at the Heart Fit Clinic since 2007 helping people prevent and reverse heart disease.


To your heart health success.
