Exercise Keeps Your Mind Sharp
Fitness News Flash
-- By Nicole Nichols, Fitness Instructor & Health Educator



A new study from the National Institutes of Health found that the most sedentary individuals (i.e. couch potatoes) are 2.5 times more likely to develop dementia than regular exercisers. Dementia is a condition of declining mental abilities ( especially memory) that affects your personality, skills (like driving a car), and verbal abilities.

Action Sparked
Stay on a consistent exercise program throughout your lifespan. Try not to view exercise as a temporary means to and end (weight loss). It is part of a healthy lifestyle, and while it does help you lose and maintain weight, it can steer off plenty of health problems, from heart disease to depression.
