Healthy living in Idaho

Thank you for visiting the section of our website devoted to helping the residents of Idaho maintain a healthy heart. On this page, you will find a variety of activities that the residents of Idaho can do to help prevent cardiac arrest, heart disease and other heart-related emergencies. We want to encourage our Idaho ACLS, PALS and BLS certification customers to use this information as a health resource.

Active lifestyle

The adult obesity rate in Idaho is 29.6%. Obesity is a root cause for a variety of heart-related health issues. Humans need daily physical activity to stay healthy. Experts agree that 20–30 minutes of physical activity per day is adequate. In an effort to help the residents of Idaho stay physically active, here are some suggestions.


Skiing is a great way to exercise and there’s no better place to do it than in Idaho. Idaho is home to many ski destinations and finding one to your own preference is easy. There are also many popular resorts in Idaho that offer skiing and boarding. Aside from the joy one gets from skiing, many people ski for its health benefits. Your feet carry the weight of your body when you ski and this activity strengthens your knee joints which make injuries less likely to happen later in life. Your cardiovascular system benefits well when you ski, increasing blood circulation and brining more oxygen and nutrients to your oxygen.


If you want to burn calories, hiking is a good physical activity to do it. It’s also a great excuse to get out and get some fresh air. Hiking in Idaho is a fun activity that will allow you to enjoy nature and have a great exercise at the same time. The state has over 19,000 miles of trails so it won’t be a problem finding a hiking trail to your preference. You can also look for bike trails if that’s what you prefer. You can build the muscles in your lower legs and hips while doing hiking as well as improve your balance and boosting your mood. Aside from the positive impact you can get from hiking, you can also lessen the risk of heart disease.

Proper diet

If you are an Idaho PALS, BLS or ACLS medical professional you know the importance of maintaining a healthy diet when it comes to the prevention of cardiac-related issues. Here is a great resource from the University of Idaho to help you learn how to eat correctly.

Also, a farmer’s market is a good way to buy healthy, organic food while supporting local farmers. Visit this site to find an Idaho farmer’s market near you.

For the kids

Local teens hailed as heroes for rescuing drowning men in lake coeur d'alene

Three local teenagers are being hailed as heroes for their quick actions in saving two men from drowning in Lake Coeur d’Alene. Lane Stidham, a 19-year-old North Idaho College student, was at the beach when he heard commotion near the dock. He and his friends rushed to the scene and began performing CPR on one man while another teen jumped into the lake to rescue the second man. After relentless CPR efforts, one of the men regained consciousness. Both were taken to Kootenai Health, and one has been released, while the other is in stable condition. Stidham, however, remains humble, saying they did what anyone else would have done.

Father saves drowning son using lifesaving app knowledge

Strapped in the car, heading to a Dallas hospital, Tyler Morgan used his phone's camera to record a terrifying moment. His two-year-old son, Beckham, nearly drowned at a pool party. Due to a lightning warning, the pool was off-limits, but Beckham's attraction to water led him in. A teen rescuer pulled Beckham from the water, lifeless and purple-faced. Amid the chaos, Tyler jumped into action. He performed CPR, relying on knowledge from an app developed by his company, Trivie. Beckham coughed, resumed breathing, and was saved.
