Exercise: Your Good Health Is Counting On It

Photo by Bruce Mars

Did you know that everything that gets you moving can and will contribute to your health-from walking to a high-intensity aerobics class?

Research shows that regular exercise can lower the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, non-insulin-dependent (type 2) diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure and certain cancers. And exercise helps people manage a great number of other health issues, including depression and anxiety, arthritis, osteoporosis and maybe even dementia. Experts say that it may even help slow the aging process. And it makes you feel good!

The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), the nonprofit association for the fitness industry, reminds people that any physical activity is better than none. The health benefits from physical activity are cumulative. The most important thing is getting started. So get moving-whether that means taking the stairs, parking farther out or walking on a treadmill. Newcomers to physical activity should start slowly and gradually work up to exercising for longer periods of time.

For many Americans, taking those first steps toward building the exercise habit can be difficult and intimidating. So during the month of May, participating health clubs will open their doors for several days to the public, free of charge, so more Americans can benefit from the safe, supportive, and enjoyable environments that health clubs offer. It’s part of the IHRSA-organized Get Active America! program to encourage more Americans to exercise for their health.

Whether you’re a senior, a mid-lifer, a 20-something or a teen, there’s a health club that can provide you with the support you need to create a workable exercise routine that fits your life. There’s a network of professionals across the country eager to help.

Remember: It’s never too late, and it’s never too little to enjoy the benefits of exercise. Do it for your health!
