Exercise is More Important Than Ever

Whether we accept it or not, the pandemic has changed the course of our lives forever. While the challenge has been great, some basic truths about our health and wellness have not changed.

Prior to COVID-19's arrival, the New York Times published an article titles "Keeping Aging Muscles Fit is Tied to Better Heart Health Later"(https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/29/well/move/keeping-aging-muscles-fit-is-tied-to-better-heart-health-later.html). The article states, "...entering middle age with plenty of muscle may lower the later risk of developing heart disease by more than 80 percent." The Times has long been an advocate of exercise as a primary means to overall health and wellness. Along with regularly published articles citing recent studies to support "exercise as medicine", resources like these can help you learn more:https://www.nytimes.com/guides/year-of-living-better/how-to-build-muscle-strength

This is just one example of many such studies and publications that illustrate the connection between exercise and overall health and longevity. During the pandemic, we have become more aware that having a robust, health musculoskeletal and cardiovascular system will protect us from disease. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) lists people with certain "medical conditions" that are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Among these are preventable through exercise and diet regimens: Obesity (BMI of 30 or higher), Type 2 Diabetes, and Hypertension (high blood pressure). See full list here:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-with-medical-conditions.html

While masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizing are doing the job to keep the virus at bay, it is time to consider the longview approach as we head into the fall and long winter months. A regular strength training, cardiovascular, and nutrition routine will keep you on the right path. While gyms have gotten a bad reputation during the pandemic, new research illustrates that it can be a safe environment with proper precautions in place (see our safety protocols here: https://beaconhillathleticclubs.com/blog/117727/Covid-19-Reopening-and-Safety-Protocols). Outdoor and/or well-distanced classes and remote or hybrid personal training are also a great option to have the best of both worlds.

This truth still holds: exercise is medicine, and exercise is more important than ever!
