Staying Fit

It is time for us to take care about what is most important. Our health. A lot of us have used the holidays as an excuse to overindulge unhealthy foods and also not make time to exercise.

Why exercise?

Our Physiotherapist Peter Ho advises that it has been found that regular exercise can have the following benefits:

.

Physical benefits:

  • helps improve and maintain muscle strength, bone density, joint flexibility and range of movement

Medical benefits:

  • improves cardiovascular fitness
  • reduce cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure
  • reduce the risk of osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and some cancers
  • reduce weight

.

Psychological benefits:

  • helps the release of certain ”feel good’ chemicals which improves mood and energy levels
