Do you feel sluggish or fatigued, as if it’s difficult to motivate yourself to get moving? Do your sore muscles or achy joints just add to that lack of motivation? If so, let’s work together to change that! Living a sedentary lifestyle is one of the main reasons why people report having low energy or feeling chronic day-to-day aches. Long car commutes, desk jobs, watching T.V. once you get home from work… many people live their lives this way, with very little physical activity. While it may not seem like it is making an impact at the time, this type of sedentary lifestyle does not set you up for success and changes your body (for the worse) over time. Contact The Fit Institute today to figure out how a consistent exercise routine can increase your energy and help you live a healthier life. Increase your energy by getting up and moving, today!

If you would benefit from lowering your blood pressure or cholesterol, aim for 40 minute sessions of moderate to vigorous activity 3 to 4 times a week. Walking just 30 minutes a day can have a positive impact on so many things!
