It is hypothesized that the addition of formal cardiac rehabilitation to standard care will result in long-term improvements in cardiovascular fitness and functional capacity in individuals who have suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke.
Furthermore, it is proposed that the addition of cardiac rehabilitation will influence stroke risk, physical activity participation, strength, and quality of life.

Participants in this group will participate in Cardiac Rehabilitation, carrying out an exercise program which will last 6 months and combine both resistance and aerobic training.
Behavioral: Cardiac Rehabilitation
Individualized cardiac rehabilitation for 6 months, including health education sessions, as well as supervised exercise classes which include aerobic and resistance training.
- Primary outcomes include improvements in cardiovascular fitness, functional capacity, and physical activity levels in individuals with TIA. This will be measured using a cardiopulmonary exercise test and a 6 minute walk test. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months, 12 months ]
- Secondary outcome measures are plasma lipid analysis, questionnaires pertaining to quality of life, physical activity and diet diaries, and results from the Montreal Cognitive Assessment and MRI analysis. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months, 12 months ]
