Numerous posts within this blog have discussed the many benefits of exercise. In addition to eliminating the need for medication, exercise can relieve stress, improve your mood, and keep your body moving better for many years to come.
More and more research over the last several years has also looked at the benefits of exercise on reducing or preventing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Findings support that exercise is the best action to take now to prevent or delay this dreaded memory affecting disease in the future. In fact, according to an article published by Mayo Clinic researcher Dr. Ronald Petersen, “Regular physical exercise is probably the best means we have of preventing Alzheimer’s disease today, better than medications, better than intellectual activity, better than supplements and diet.”
The reasons to exercise are clear – better physical and mental health in the short- and long-term. What’s holding you back from getting the most out of your workouts or from starting an exercise routine? Contact me today. I’d love to help you maximize all of the benefits that exercise has to offer!
