BENEFITS OF AEROBIC EXERCISE


The heart is a muscle, and as with any muscle, must be exercised to stay strong and working. After two to three months of aerobic exercise on a regular basis (three times a week for 20 or more minutes), the heart thickens, pumping more oxygenated blood with each beat. The arteries expand in diameter, allowing for greater blood flow. The working muscles of the arms and legs become efficient at using oxygen from the bloodstream. Exercise capacity improves tremendously.

The major risk factors for heart disease are reduced by aerobic exercise. Higher levels of HDL (the good cholesterol) are produced, and the arteries have less plaque. The resting heart rate decreases, resulting in the same amount of blood pumped each day but with less wear and tear on the heart. Numerous studies indicate that aerobic exercise reduces depression and anxiety, and calms the mind. Sleep habits improve over a period of time. And, a Harvard University study of alumni men suggests the more active you are, the longer you will live.

Tune-Up is the best example of this type of aerobic exercise that combines massage, acupressure, and reflexology in one single system.

Tune-Up has all five important benefits:

Enjoyable – A pleasant, positive response from the program insures compliance.

Safe & Simple – Reaching your goals should not interfere with other health conditions.

The program is simple to follow.

The energy you spend during the exercise program is applied for achieving more health benefits.

Universal - The exercise can be applied to different areas of the body to reach

different goals by people with different conditions, age, life style, etc.

Affordable - The price is a reasonable one-time payment.

You can start TUNE-UP with just a 2-minute session.
