Wellness/Fitness

There are many benefits of regular physical activity. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, these benefits include improved cardiovascular health and a reduction in risk factors for heart disease.

The cardiovascular system transports oxygen to all the cells and organs in the body. If this system is sluggish, you may feel tired or weak. Exercise tunes up your circulatory and respiratory system, maximizing the efficiency of oxygen transport to all parts of the body. This is why, when you exercise, you may notice less fatigue, more energy, and a greater sense of well being.

Heart disease risk factors are those conditions that increase your risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or even sudden death. These risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, increased body fat, and high glucose levels as well as diabetes. Regular exercise can help control, reduce, or eliminate each of these risk factors.
