The Headlines We Need To See
Why haven’t we seen these news headlines…
EXERCISE IS MEDICINE
FITNESS IS ESSENTIAL
It saddens me that we aren’t being encouraged to improve our physical condition.
*The CDC reports obesity increases risk of hospitalization from covid-19 by 700%.
*Poor cardiovascular fitness is an increased risk factor.
*A study from the University of Virginia found exercise reduces a person’s risk of even contracting covid-19.
*Exercise is known to impact and improve the immune system.
*Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a top cause of death from covid-19. Research has shown that there is an exercise-induced antioxidant that can protect against this.
*There is now an abundance of evidence that Vitamin D reduces covid-19 infection, severity, ICU admission and mortality.
There’s an ABUNDANCE of scientific evidence showing the benefits of exercise on:
- cardiovascular disease
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- stroke recovery
- sarcopenia (loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength)
- And the mental health benefits of regular exercise is indisputable and very impressive.
Fitness is about strength, mobility, muscular endurance and all of the things just mentioned. It’s NOT just about looks and aesthetics.
