Risk Factors for Heart Disease: Exercise

Risk Factors for Heart Disease: Exercise

August 14, 2019 0 By Bertrand Dibbert


Not enough time. Not enough money. I’m not in shape. I can’t do it. I’ve heard it all. I get it. You’re busy. Between work and kids, you’re
lucky if you have time to sleep let alone go to the gym. You don’t have to go to the gym
7 days a week to treat your body to the benefits of exercise! In fact, you don’t have
to go to the gym at all! Try a short walk on your lunch
break, replace your office chair with an exercise ball to
strength then your core and burn extra calories… All you need is 30
minutes of moderate physical activity most days
of the week – and it doesn’t even have to be all at once! You can do this. Can’t afford a gym membership? You don’t need one! There are ways to
work out for free! Believe it or not soup cans are
great as makeshift weights. Marching or dancing can
be done from the comfort of your own home. And, trust me when I say,
there’s nothing nicer than a brisk walk through
the great outdoors! To that I say: Yes, you can! Start small! You don’t have to be ‘that guy’
to be in shape. You don’t have to
run marathons – just take the dog
for a nice walk! You don’t have to pump
iron – just get moving! Any little bit goes a long way. The benefits of any
physical activity at all is far greater than the investment. Childhood obesity has
tripled in the last 3 decade and adults aren’t much better. A billion people
worldwide are overweight and 300 million are obese. The risks associated with being
overweight are overwhelming. Being active for at least 150
minutes a week can help reduce anyone’s risk of premature
death, heart disease and stroke. Tired? Exercise will give
you more energy. Overweight? Exercise will help you
maintain a healthy weight and greatly reduce your risk
of heart disease, diabetes, and over-all
mortality associated with physical inactivity. Trust me, your body
WILL thank you! Wanna know more? www.francoforme.ca
