Brief Summary:

Cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of death worldwide. Some of the risk factors that have been identified are considered as be non-modifiable and modifiable. Among the non-modifiable, gender, age, race, family history and pathological antecedents such as diabetes and hypertension among others are taken into account. The modifiable factors are weight, abdominal circumference, habits such as smoking, alcohol consumption, diet and especially the EXERCISE.

In order to modify these risk factors, patients are submitted to a strategy of health promotion, disease prevention, pharmacological treatments, non-invasive and invasive treatments such as cardiac catheterization, balloon coronary angioplasty and / or stent implantation, cardiovascular surgeries etc. However, one of the most important strategies that should be of great importance is to involve the patient and his family in these treatments through education and follow-up strategies whether it is through the telephone, home visit, e-mail, messages, etc. In this way, the patient is brought to a state of self-determination and self-awareness that leads him to perform physical activity routinely so he can change his cardiovascular risk factors and become a patient adherent to exercise or any other treatment. This is where the importance of exercise or aerobic physical activity is emphasized, as it is a low-cost activity that can be performed by any type of patient, and that results are easily observed in physical and physiological changes that can be objectively measurable, such as the levels in serum lipid profile (cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL), or cardiovascular function tests such as stress tests with METs indicating increased aerobic capacity (Improvement in ability to withstand a stress test).

Therefore, the purpose of this study is to submit a group of patients to an education and telephone follow-up plan, emphasizing on the importance of performing physical activity with the appropriate intensity and frequency so that they can include it within their daily routine by itself and ensure "the adherence to physical activity".

Physiological changes that these patients may present as a consequence of the acquired routine physical activity by being subject to the education and telephone follow-up plan of this research will be measured with serum HDL levels in a clinical laboratory test and MET in a stress test.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Education plan and adherence to exercise
  • Educational talk about the importance of nutrition and exercise as an important strategy to change cardiovascular risk factors at the start of the study.
  • It will be sent via text, whatsapp, and / or e-mail on a weekly basis three text messages that remind them of the importance of doing the exercise and how often they should do it, it will be a predetermined text.
Behavioral: Education plan and adherence to exercise
  • Send text messages with motivational sense at any time of the day, every 3 or 4 days.
  • They will be given the option of performing directed exercise at the cardiac rehabilitation center.
  • It will be recorded in an Excel table every time that text is sent to the patient.
  • At the beginning and monthly, a brochure will be sent out explaining how physical activity is performed at home in case you can not walk.
  • A monthly survey will be applied where the adherence to the exercise during the previous month is measured.
  • These activities will be carried out for 12 weeks. At the end of week 12, patients will be referred to the cardiac rehabilitation unit in order to perform the aerobic capacity test again.

No Intervention: Control

The blood sample will be taken for the collection of serum HDL and the aerobic capacity test measured in MET will be recorded at the beginning of the study.

A survey will be conducted at week 12 of monitoring where adherence to exercise is measured during the 12-week study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adherence to exercise [ Time Frame: Measured at the end of the 12 week monitoring ]
    Perform routine physical activity as a principle of self-determination and convert it into a healthy lifestyle or habit

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in HDL levels and MET [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline HDL and MET and at the end of the 12 week monitoring ]
    Change in HDL level and MET as the difference between baseline HDL and MET and final HDL and MET
