Can you limit your sitting to just 23 ½ hours a day?
As a personal trainer and corrective exercise practitioner, I occasionally come across material that truly excites me and reinforces why I am passionate about assisting people with their health and wellbeing. If you have ever had any doubts about the crucial role that exercise plays on your health (or you’re seeking the motivation to start!), invest your next 9 minutes to watch the presentation below.
This presentation examines the single intervention that makes the biggest difference and has the largest impact on your health. In a detailed summary of the research, the video below demonstrates the following benefits of this intervention:
- Patients with knee arthritis who received 1 hour of the intervention 3 times per week reduced their rates of disability by 47%.
- The intervention was found to reduce the progression of dementia and Alzheimer’s by 50%.
- For patients at a high risk of diabetes, the intervention reduced the progression to diabetes by 58%.
- Post-menopausal women who had 4 hours per week of the intervention had a 41% reduction in the risk of hip fracture.
- The intervention reduced anxiety by 48%.
- 30-47% with depression were relieved by the intervention.
- One study followed over 10,000 Harvard Alumni for over 12 years. Those who had the intervention had a 23% lower risk of death than those who didn’t have the intervention.
- The intervention is the number 1 treatment of fatigue.
- Quality of life is improved with the intervention.
What’s the intervention? The intervention or medicine is EXERCISE!
Furthermore, research has identified that a low fitness level is the strongest predictor of death. Moreover, obese individuals who are still active reduce and avoid many of the negative consequences of obesity.
So I ask you…CAN YOU LIMIT YOUR SITTING AND SLEEPING TO JUST 231/2 HOURS A DAY?
