Variety is key for overall health

Variety is key for overall health

A lot of people just stick with one type of exercise whether it be lifting, yoga, pilates, or running. However, a new study shows that a balanced program that includes resistance exercise, interval sprint exercise, stretching (including yoga or pilates), and endurance exercise is superior for overall health.

Participants who engaged in a multi-dimensional program showed the greatest reduction in body weight, total and abdominal fat mass, waist circumference, blood glucose and increase in lean body mass. We have all of these options available at gymlion.com if you’re in DC, NYC, or Raleigh/ Durham, so come check us out!
