Andy Beal suffered a massive stroke and heart attack at the age of 44. The entire right side of his body was paralyzed. He had trouble thinking, talking, and answering the simplest of questions. Just two days later, Beal walked out of the hospital in what doctors call a “remarkable recovery.”

That remarkable recovery was in part due to the heart health improvements Andy Beal made just eight months earlier. Beal improved his diet, exercised more, and reduced many of his risk factors for heart disease. If not for his decision to improve his heart health early in life, Beal may have died.

Since his recovery, Andy Beal has become a passionate advocate for heart attack and stroke awareness, an ambassador for the American Heart Association, a certified personal trainer, and a weight management specialist.

Whether you’re 44, 54, or 64 years of age, Optimize Your Heart is a practical, simple guide to help you reduce your cardiovascular disease risks, eliminate unhealthy habits, improve your nutrition, become more physically active, and optimize your heart health before a stroke or heart attack can strike.

Andy Beal, CPT, is a certified personal trainer and weight management specialist with a passion for cardiac prehabilitation—helping clients improve their heart health and reduce their risks for cardiovascular disease. Optimize Your Heart is Beal’s third book and combines his engaging writing style with his desire to help others while adding a dash of his witty humor.
