Many people are worried about fitting their exercise routine in this summer between family vacations and holiday barbecues, according to The Pantagraph.
Fitness losses could mean unwanted bodily gains, and wellness coordinator for State Farm Insurance companies Sherri Gatto recommends keeping up wherever one may be.
"Every day, we need to fit in at least 30 minutes of physical activity," Gatto told the news source. "Wherever we're at in life, we need to figure out how to fit it in."
Indeed, exercise should be an important part of everyday life, as healthcare professionals and fitness gurus alike herald the benefits of sticking to a routine.
The Mayo Clinic outlines the major benefits of keeping fit on its website. In addition to commonly known benefits like controlling weight and increasing energy, the healthcare provider also explains that exercise can help to improve your mood and stave off chronic illness.
According to the source, engaging in cardio and pumping weights can help to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol, among other things. So, buying a gym membership could help to reduce trips to the doctor, and subsequently lower health insurance bills.
