Generally, I like to keep this space “informational”, and this time it will be “promotional”. Don’t stop reading!
If 7 of the top 10 causes of death for men and women are stress related, then let me promote something that will help decrease stress/inflammation/cortisol response…EXERCISE.
At the Fitness Clinic of Los Gatos, we don’t focus on the scale, but rather the improvement of muscle to fat ratio (body composition). Through exercise, people get stronger, fitter, and more able to do the things they want to do. They also decrease blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and depression because exercise is one of the two best mechanisms for lowering stress. The other is sleep, and an exercised body will be able to have better quality sleep.
If you have already gotten frustrated with health related resolutions, here is the pitch:
- Join Fitness Clinic open gym by January 31, 2018
- Get 2 months FREE
- 24/7 access
- Orientation/Workout Program complimentary with membership
- New clients only
