Activity & Exercise

Get Physical

Exercise not only burns calories, it can also help your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Your heart will thank you, too. Active people are less likely to get heart disease than people who are sedentary. Talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise routine.

Are you a heart event survivor?
"I quit smoking, eat better, and try to exercise which is a big downfall of mine."
"I was sitting in my chair and my arms hurt badly. I went to the ER and nothing showed up. I took aspirin and came home went to bed. The next day, my arms were still hurting. I called my doctor; he said go to another hospital ER. I did and sure enough I was leaking enzymes from my heart. He put 3 or 4 stents in because I was blocked badly. I have felt good ever since. I quit smoking, eat better, and try to exercise which is a big downfall of mine. I thank God everyday for each day and I appreciate and love my family more and more each day. I had no warning signs but for years my left arm hurt off and on and I felt sluggish. Thank God for my doctor and the meds he put me on to save my life."
