Exercise is Medicine
If the doctor told you the following, what would you think? Would you want to learn more? Or make a change?
"There's a medication you can get: it's relatively cheap, and you can get it for free too ... the side effects include stronger bones, tendons, and connective tissue, better strength, and function. It's recommended for heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and arthritis as well as cancer. You might get some fatigue and it will require you to not sit for about 30 minutes a day ... it's exercise."
Perhaps if our mindset was that a movement routine was taken as seriously as a trip to the doctor we could improve our health. Presented by Adam Knapp.
