Exercise versus Father Time

How to live a longer, healthier life.

While we can’t live forever, we can increase our chances for living longer.  Numerous studies over the last several decades have shown us that high-quality exercise on our muscles has multiple benefits.

Exercise raises the blood levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, thereby, decreasing the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Other benefits of exercise are: lowing blood pressure, reducing the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes, and many other benefits.

Because your body produces new cells every day, you give your body a fighting chance against aging, by combining high-quality exercise and good nutrition to contribute to the health of those new cells.  If you are eating high-quality foods and applying a productive work load on your muscles; you tip the scales in your favor for a longer, healthier life. In other words, “in with the good and out with the bad”.

Now that we’ve started the New Year, it’s time to stop feeling anxious about Father Time and begin doing something about it. While we may not be able to outrun the reaper forever, there are ways to keep one step ahead of him, and Dr. Reffell will be discussing creative ways to do just that!

Join us for this informative and fun workshop where Dr. Reffell will discuss proven secrets and strategies to slow your body’s clock. He’ll review tips and ideas for using practical steps to stay well, healthy and have more energy.

Join us at The Exercise Coach this Saturday, January 12, 2012 from 2 pm to 3 pm. We are located at 303 E. Northwest Highway in the Palatine Plaza. Space is limited, so R.S.V.P  to 847-221-5980 to reserve your spot.
