We all know that we need to be fit, active and healthy, but why? Why can’t we just sit in our recliner, eat snacks and watch TV all day? Binge watching our favorite shows is way more fun anyway, right? The excuses to not exercise are endless, too. I know. I’ve used them all. It’s too hot, it’s too cold, it’s raining, there’s not enough room in my house, I don’t have any equipment, I don’t have anybody to do it with. I encourage you to get up and move if you aren’t already doing that. Being active doesn’t mean it has to be a rigorous, dreaded workout either. Do things you enjoy. Walk, play with kids, swim, hike, work in your yard, etc. You can always call me and make an appointment to come to the AYMC. You won’t be by yourself, and the weather is always perfect! I promise there are benefits.
• Improves your sleep.
• Keeps you mobile.
• Helps you perform daily tasks more easily.
• Helps prevent disease.
• Helps alleviate digestion issues.

Keep fit because it will improve your quality of life and allow you to keep doing things you love. Fitness, activity, exercise, whatever you want to call it – this movement is how our bodies were meant to function.
