Find Time For Exercise

Those who cannot find time for exercise, sooner or later will have to find time for illness.

This is a sad but true fact. Our bodies were designed for movement and if we don't get in the habit of regular exercise, sooner or later we will feel the detrimental effects of a sedentary lifestyle:

  • Anxiety
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Mortality in elderly men by 30% and double the risk in elderly women
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Colon cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Osteoporosis
  • Lipid disorders
  • Kidney stones
