Exercise as Medicine

If the benefits of exercise could be put into pill form, it would be the most prescribed medication in the nation.  

Use the benefits of exercise to:

  • Improve blood pressure, decrease resting heart rate
  • Lose more weight than dieting alone
  • Decrease belly fat and inches around waist
  • Reduce the risk of developing heart disease
  • Reduce the risk of having a stroke
  • Increase strength and muscle endurance
  • Increase bone density
  • Improve flexibility, balance, and coordination
  • Decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce the risk of developing cancer
  • Help alleviate low back pain
  • Improve function of the immune system
  • Relieve pain of tension and migraine headaches
  • Reduce anxiety levels and manage stress
  • Increase productivity
