"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."
- John F. Kennedy
From the moment of conception your body has been moving. Movement began as the by-product of the electrical interactions occurring throughout every cell in your body as you became you.
So crucial is movement that the minute you begin to move all manner of physiological and brain chemistry changes occur. The more you transition from movement into exercising the greater the benefits. If you are ill or as you meet each New Year your exercise and movement needs change.
"Those who think they have no time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness."
- Edward Stanley
Remember this: even if your range of movement is limited you can still systematically move, even from bed. The bottom line remains: movement is essential for a healthy body and brain.
How much should you exercise? What kind of exercise is the healthiest? That depends on what you want to accomplish and what kind of impact you want your workout to have on your physiology and brain. Enhanced performance Training® will work with you to establish an exercise program you can commit to and feel excited about whether you are running triathlons or confined to bed.
"Take care of your body.
It's the only place you have to live."
- Jim Rohn
