Living an Active Lifestyle
Exercising has evolved as we’ve grown. We used to play baseball or tennis for fun, and now we play for our health. Whether we opt for gentler ways of stretching and toning like yoga or more intense activities like rowing, bicycling or running, we all need to understand that our bodies are important to every part of our lives and we need to care for them.
We also need to stay in tuned with our bodies – noticing if something aches a little more than it used to or monitoring sugar or cholesterol levels. We can help with every aspect of keeping yourself physically healthy. Our experts – and our patients – can speak to the importance of caring for the body through regular check-ups with a primary care provider, paying attention to chronic conditions like heart disease, and keeping the body in tip-top shape through exercise, strength training and, if needed, weight loss.
Short of spotting you on the weight bench, we’re on this journey together.
