When looking to make improvements in one’s overall lifestyle, we need more than a balanced diet to live a happy and healthy life. Our body is made to move. Think about movement of the body the same way you think about driving a car: when a vehicle is stationary for too long it no longer starts. All the nuts and bolts get rusty, different parts of the motor get filled with gunk, the battery loses its charge. Funny to think of a battery no longer having any juice because it is sedentary and not being used, not to mention how this shortens its lifespan. Our bodies work in the same way. They are our one and only machine. Not only do we need to feed it with premium octane, i.e. whole food, plenty of water, lots of dark, leafy greens, we need to get it off the couch and moving.

We know exercise is good for us. But do you know how good?

Just a few of the benefits:
Controls weight
Lowers blood pressure and arterial stiffness
Enhances quality of sleep
Decreases inflammation
Improves flexibility
Reduces osteoporosis
and the list goes on…

The reality for people is they do not enjoy traditional forms of exercise, so in order to be successful at creating a fitness regimen you need to discover what it is you love to do that makes you sweat.
