Albert is a 54-year-old man. He came to our studio because he wanted to lose weight and improve his health. He was a Type 2 diabetic and had high cholesterol levels. His weight was 315 lbs. and his father and brother had struggled with cardiac disease. He also had surgery in both knees due to overweight.
One day he decided he couldn’t continue down the path he was living. He did not want to keep taking as many medications while still feeling tired all day. He wasn’t feeling healthy, he was not feeling happy.
Seven months ago, he decided to change his life. He came for a consultation and our trainers gave him advice on what he could do to lose weight, improve his nutrition, improve his cardiac health and reinforce his legs/knees muscles to lower the pressure over his knees. Last February he began training four times per week. As of today, he has lost 50 lbs. The day he came for a consultation, his cardiovascular endurance during a three minute step test was 140 beats per minute, today’s results have gone down to 72 beats per minute. His doctor stopped his diabetes medicines and when he gets to lose 15 more lbs. he will be able to stop his cholesterol pills as well.
Albert is feeling lighter, healthier and happier… and he is lowering his medical bills. He realizes if he had stared five years ago he wouldn’t had gone through all this medications and surgeries. There are thousands of studies showing that exercise improve the body performance.
Being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, reinforces your heart efficiency allowing to pump the same amount of blood with less effort, decreasing your risk of cardiovascular diseases. According to Mayo Clinic studies, regular exercise helps prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 diabetes, depression, a number of types of cancer, arthritis and falls. Physical activity also will improve your mood, will make you look better and will help you get a faster and deeper sleep.
