3 reasons to exerciseThere’s no denying it—physical activity is essential for our overall health. But did you know how much a regular exercise program can improve your life? From expediting the results of diets and weight management programs to elevating your mood and boosting work performance, exercise is the element that can change the game for good. While nutrition counseling can help you identify and modify unhealthy eating patterns, a good workout will burn calories, fat and help you build lean muscle mass.

The benefits of consistent physical activity are impossible to ignore. But if you need them spelled out to motivate you to exercise, here are a few of the top reasons that physicians and nutrition counseling experts recommend physical activity.

Exercise boosts energy. Exercise delivers oxygen and essential nutrients to your body so that it works more efficiently, resulting in greater energy levels. When you increase movement and work out regularly, you build strength and boost stamina, which will benefit every aspect of your life and give you the energy you need to get through your day.

Exercise combats diseases and chronic illnesses. An active lifestyle makes you healthy for life —it helps lower blood pressure, while boosting HDL cholesterol and lowering levels of LDL cholesterol (considered “bad” cholesterol). Working out also improves blood flow and circulation, which reduces your risk of heart disease, as well as strokes, metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes, arthritis, depression and some forms of cancer.

Exercise boosts diets and weight management programs. Regular workouts and other physical activity helps you lose weight and maintain results. The calorie burn keeps your numbers down so that you burn more calories than you consume, which is the basic principle behind weight loss. Start out slow if you haven’t exercised in a while, and incorporate extra movement into your day by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, going on short walks to run errands or during your lunch break. Add in some cardiovascular workouts, strength training and flexibility training such as yoga, Pilates or gymnastic classes.

I couldn't be happier! The staff is awesome... though I only have seen the doctor twice, I'm ok because the team is great! The only issue for me really is...
