FITNESS

As little as 15 minutes of walking per day makes a huge difference!

All-around fitness is important for staying fully functional as we age. Most experts recommend a combination of aerobic activities and flexibility, strength, and balance exercises. Resistance training, in particular, produces amazing benefits. The 4 major markers of poor heart health include hypertension, over weight, diabetes and cholesterol. Resistance training in any form is better for your heart than other forms of exercise. If you haven't already, start resistance training and you'll significantly improve your heart health.
