What are the health benefits of aerobic exercise?

  • Improved oxygen delivery to body tissues
  • Lowered risk of cardiovascular disease

Consult with your physician before beginning any exercise regimen. Start slowly and work your way up to heavier weights, increased intensity and increased duration. Starting an exercise plan that is too intense without gradual advancement can increase your risk of injury, which is the last thing you want. We emphasize a balanced exercise plan incorporating cardio (aerobic and anaerobic) with muscular strengthening, and flexibility training.
