Why Be Active?


Regular physical activity promotes health and prevents disease.  Physical inactivity substantially increases the risk of coronary heart disease, this nation's leading cause of death, and increases the risk for colon cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  Regular physical activity helps to:

  • control weight
  • contributes to healthy bones, muscles, and joints
  • helps to relieve the pain of arthritis
  • reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • is associated with fewer hospitalizations, physician visits, and medications.
  • increases personal energy levels
  • promotes improved sleep
  • boosts self-confidence
  • helps you perform at peak levels.
