It’s easy to go through daily life without even thinking about what your body is doing. Going up and down the stairs, doing laundry, picking up your child or grandchild, or even exercising are routine activities that your body becomes used to performing. But it’s often activities like these that can lead to imbalances or even injury if your muscles — particularly your core — aren’t properly engaged and stabilized.
Have you been thinking about starting a workout routine, but just don’t know where to start? There are many types of training out there, and it can be confusing and difficult to navigate where to begin, how to structure a routine, and how to choose the right kind of exercise for you. Maybe you already have a fitness routine but aren’t seeing results or getting satisfaction from it. Regardless of the reason, if you are looking to start or change your routine, it’s important to consider the different aspects of a well-rounded fitness plan.
Exercise and fitness are essential for healthy living, but sometimes we can get lost in how to prioritize our fitness endeavors. From corrective exercises to cardio, or strength training to yoga, the options are vast. During this webinar, Dr. Jason Biondo will focus on how to develop a personalized exercise program relative to your goals. He will look at some of the latest trends and literature and how this can support you on your fitness journey.

Ladies: you’ve probably heard all about the hot flashes, mood swings, and physical changes that are all part of the inevitable process of menopause. Maybe you’ve even started experiencing some of these things. If you have, you’re certainly not alone. One of the most common changes women notice during this time is weight gain or redistribution, particularly around the middle. Though it can be a frustrating time for your mind and body, it doesn’t have to dictate your quality of life beyond menopause.

Most of us know how to recover from a stressful day: we find ways to disconnect for the evening, spend time in quiet or with loved ones, or even perhaps get outside for a walk and fresh air. Letting your mind rest and process that stress allows you to come back ready to take on the next day. Interestingly enough, this kind of recovery doesn’t only apply to environmental stressors that affect your mental state. Physiologically, your body works the same way.
