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 depressive symptoms and cognition.

Following a 3 month non intervention period, participants 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.
- Functional Walk Test [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, 6 months (Six Minute Walk Distance) ]6 minute walk test: the longest distance a person can walk for a duration of 6 minutes
- Cardiovascular Fitness (VO2peak) [ Time Frame: Baseline (after the 3 month non-intervention period) and after 6 months of participation. ]To measure cardiovascular fitness, a stress test on either an upright cycle ergometer (Ergoselect 200P, Germany), or a treadmill (same modality pre- and post-training) was performed depending on patient balance and comfort.
- Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months (non-intervention period), after 6 months of cardiac rehabilitation participation ]Depressive symptoms using the validated Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). This is a score from a 20 item questionnaire with minimum value of 0 and maximum value of 60 with higher numbers indicated greater depressive symptoms (worse).
- Cognition [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months (non-intervention period), after 6 months of cardiac rehabilitation participation ]Montreal Cognitive Assessment. The MoCA score ranges from 0 to 30 points with a higher score indicating better cognitive function.
