While it is hard to single out which is the most important part of the body or organ, the heart quickly comes to mind because of the role it plays keeping a person alive. It is therefore important that one takes utmost care of the heart. The heart beats the life into our bodies.
One way of keeping the heart alive and health is through exercising, experts at The City Gym revealed. The City Gym located at Kampala Boulevard building on Kampala Road is a premium gym with state of the art equipment important from Tecno Gym Italy.
The City Gym offers specific heart rate exercises to make the heart strong so that it doesn't have to work as hard to pump blood. The blood provides your body with the oxygen and nutrients it needs. It also carries away waste.
“At The City Gym we believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy a fit and healthy lifestyle. So we have made it simple, affordable & convenient for everyone to achieve their personal health goals,” a gym instructor at The City Gym said.
Exercises like aerobic, spinning, dance and jogging make your heart stronger. This helps it pump more blood with each heartbeat. This delivers more oxygen to your body. With more oxygen, your body functions more efficiently.
Exercise can also lower blood pressure. It reduces your risk of heart disease and reduces levels of bad cholesterol. Bad cholesterol can clog the arteries and can cause a heart attack. At the same time, exercise can raise levels of good cholesterol. Good cholesterol helps protect against a heart attack by carrying fatty deposits out of the arteries.
If you haven’t been exercising, try to work up to 30 minutes, 4 to 6 times a week. Your doctor may recommend a different exercise regimen based on your health. Alternate exercise days with rest days or days you do a very different type of exercise. This will help prevent injuries.
Diet and exercise are an important part of your heart health. If you don’t eat a good diet and you don’t exercise, you are at increased risk of developing health problems. These include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. These increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
When combined with a healthy diet, exercise can speed up weight loss. Regular exercise builds lean muscle, which burns more calories than fat. This helps you burn calories faster, even when you’re sitting still.
