Exercise – No longer a choice but a potential life and death necessity
Regular exercise may reduce the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome, a major cause of death in patients with the COVID-19 virus, (a top exercise researcher reports). He is urging people to exercise based on his findings, which also suggest a potential treatment approach.
While those of us that are in the health and fitness industry are well aware of the effects of a healthy lifestyle and, to this study specifically, exercise, there are still those in the population that for a myriad of reasons just continue to avoid exercise. While I could spend entire pages on the excuses I have heard in my 35 years, I have yet to hear one that carries any validity. To prove my point take my quick "Validity of Excuse" test. I have been administering this test for 35 years and have yet to have anyone take the test and have their excuse validated.
Question (Yes or No answer only): If your bank called and said that if you came to the bank and spent 30 minutes there 3 times per week and all you had to do was a simple walk on their treadmill they would in turn put $5,000 in your bank account. Could you find the time? Would you do it? If you answer no, you are the first person in 35 years to do that. My point being, there are no excuses. Just the need to embrace the importance. The proof is now official. With Covid-19 we saw it attack the unhealthy and, in a lot of those cases, cause death. Exercise is not just for the spandex crowd anymore. And it is not something you can tuck in the corner because you think you are fine without it. This new virus attacks the unhealthy but fortunately, some survive. What if the next one is worse? What if the next virus is a guaranteed death sentence to those with preventable chronic diseases caused by an unhealthy lifestyle that causes you to have a chronic disease like diabetes, obesity, or high blood pressure?
The time to get started is now. After 35 years of seeing everything in the fitness world, I have spoken with a lot of people who do not know where to start. This is because parts of our own industry have spewed flat out lies or misrepresentations of what healthy exercise is in the name of selling something. That is absolutely a fair reason to be so confused that one does not know what is right and what is wrong. Well, I am going to change that. Follow my website where I am going to be pulling back the curtain and exposing the false claims and providing you with all of the information you will ever need to be able to add a healthy level of exercise to your life the right way. Parts of the fitness industry are not going to like what I have to say, but this will be to help you not the fitness industry. And trust me; I will not hold anything back.
