Michael Braid is a producer of DVD programmes and has been for the past 30 years. He has had experience of filming and production worldwide. Having suffered a heart attack afew years ago, Michael underwent treatment and surgery at both Milton Keynes Hospital and the John Radcliffe Centre in Oxford.
As part of the recovery procedure he was placed on the Heart recovery programme at Milton Keynes Hospital which included a weekly Exercise Programme. This turned out to be very beneficial and He then produced a programme for the National Health Service about the Cardiac Services at Milton Keynes Hospital. This lead naturally into a heart exercise programme aimed at recovering patients. He teamed up with Louise Hvass once the need for a DVD program on Healthy Exercise was identified and they jointly decided to produce the first version of this heart Fit exercise programme.
