Exercise is one of the best things we can do to get and remain healthy and avoid chronic disease. Unfortunately for most of us, we don’t get enough, or any at all, on a consistent basis. Our bodies were meant to move. Years ago, when exercise was unavoidable and food was scarce, obesity and chronic disease rarely existed. Today, thanks to modern technology and the availability of food 24/7, the opposite is true. We’ve become a sedentary society and, consequently, struggle with weight and health issues.
In addition to controlling our weight, exercise can keep chronic disease at bay. A regular fitness program helps protect us against heart disease, certain cancers, type II diabetes, arthritis, and osteoporosis. It can also relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety. Fortunately, we don’t have to train for a marathon or spend hours at the gym to reap these benefits. A little each day goes a long way toward improving and maintaining our health.
As your health coach, I will encourage you to incorporate movement and physical activity into your life. Like diet, there is no one exercise program that is right for everyone. Your routine will depend on your age, health, interests, and current level of fitness.
Together we will explore:
- which types of exercise are best for you;
- how often and how long you need to workout to remain healthy and reach your goals;
- how best to fit physical activity into your schedule; and
- how to add movement into your routine throughout the day.
