The purpose of the WHISH STAR study is to investigate whether or not those who are randomized to exercise intervention have higher rates of atrial fibrillation on review of medical records and, in a subset, on screening with a cardiac ECG patch monitor. We will also study whether those with a known history of AF have any changes in AF hospitalizations due to exercise.
