Your blood pressure describes the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure. High blood pressure means the force of blood flowing through your blood vessels is too high.
The 12 Week Program for High Blood Pressure is tailored for people with high blood pressure. You’ll still get to enjoy all the aspects of the regular 12 Week Program, including all the same tracking tools and features, but this program takes into account your specific health condition and educates you on how best to manage this issue.
