Sometimes healthy people have heart attacks
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Let me explain. A elderly woman that goes to Jazzercise with me had a heart attack 4 months ago. We were all shocked because she works out and she didn't have any symptoms leading up to the actual attack. Here's the thing though. Because of her fitness regimen, she bounced back quickly after having open heart surgery. Her doctors were amazed at how quickly she recovered. So although some people were saying "Why exercise when a heart attack could happen anyway?" I say "Why not be the healthiest you can be?" If the unexpected happens, your chance of recovering faster is so much better".
