Exercise as Medicine

Posted by Kevin Kirk on Sunday, January 8, 2012
If you're a regular exerciser (and chances are if you are reading this website you already exercise), then you probably know what is about to follow - that exercise gives you more health benefits than any medicine (or large number of medicines) you can take. The News & Observer is running a five part series this week on that theme. The first article published today does a wonderful job of summarizing the wide variety of benefits you get from being active. Many of the ideas in the article are points I've been making to groups and clients for years. It's nice to see this information get a bigger voice.  You can access the article here:  http://www.newsobserver.com/2012/01/08/1760701/a-lifetime-of-benefits-from-breaking.html

They even have a quote that's similar to my answer to "Do you exercise every day?"  "Nope.  Only the days I eat."
