"Evidence is growing for the protective effect of higher physical activity levels in preventing many chronic diseases (such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer) and in reducing all cause mortality."

"we found that those who engaged in both aerobic and muscle strengthening activities consistent with the recommended 2018 physical activity guidelines for Americans showed a reduced risk of all cause mortality (40% reduction)."

"Using a large nationally representative sample of US adults, we found that those who engaged in both aerobic and muscle strengthening activities consistent with the recommended 2018 physical activity guidelines for Americans showed a reduced risk of all cause mortality (40% reduction)."

"the study was a prospective cohort study based on data from a large (n=479 856) nationally representative survey among US adults."

"Among the 479 856 eligible US adults between 1997 and 2014, however, only 15.9% (n=76 384) fully met the guidelines (that is, engaged in recommended aerobic and muscle strengthening activities)."

"This highlights that education programmes should include information on the health benefits of physical activity, and well equipped facilities should be developed to facilitate increased physical activity among US adults."

According to Harvard researchers the # of candles we blow out at our birthday should correlated to our BIOLOGICAL not CHRONOLOGICAL age. We now know that you can lower you're biological age by 9-19 years by joining the 15.9% of people who meet the US & international Physical Activity Guidelines of 75 minutes of moderate intensity activity/week or 150 minutes of light-moderate intensity activity/week (30 min/day for 5 days), PLUS 2x/week muscle strengthening exercises.

"Lack of time is, however, one important barrier for people to meet the guidelines." Let us help you with our flexible programs.
