BODY COMPOSITION VS. BODY WEIGHT

Body fat is not a fact of heredity. Heredity might determine where you tend to store excess fat, but body fat is usually caused by lifestyle. During the teen years, the number of fat cells becomes constant. The only change in these cells is the size of a cell. The
more fat stored in the cell, the larger the cell becomes in size.

One of the rewards of aerobic exercise is the development of more fat burning enzymes. Conditioned tissues burn more fat, not just during exercise, but all the time. This helps to reduce the amount of non-essential fat. In a combination of the right amount of daily
calories for a healthy weight, cardiovascular exercise, and strength training to tone muscle mass, the body can eventually arrive at the optimum health.

Tune-Up is an instructional program which teachers you how to reach a higher level of vitality through aerobic exercise with resistance combined with massage, acupressure, and reflexology utilizing a massage belt.
