Albert Cyprys is a resident, professional and devotee of New York City.
He is sure to take time each day to get some exercise, which he knows is a critical part of keeping healthy. Regular exercise helps you to keep or maintain a proper weight, sleep better, lower the risk of cancer, heart disease and other health problems, and even make you smarter by helping your brain to function better.
But it’s important to be careful with any exercise program, because if it isn’t done right it can actually have a negative impact on your health. Trainers and health professionals mean it when they say you should listen to your body. Pain from exercise could mean that you are going beyond your limitations, and that you need to cut back on your level of exercise. The saying “No pain, no gain” can be misleading. Your body desperately needs exercise, but there is such a thing as too much too soon.
Health experts say that to lose ten percent of your body weight and keep it off, you need to exercise for an hour a day, five days a week. But this is only if you are overweight, and it must be done in conjunction with a proper diet. If you are overweight, the best way to get started is by walking. Walking as exercise is low-risk, and you can get fit quickly with regular walking.
Albert Cyprys stays fit by walking, skateboarding, bike riding, and maintaining a good diet.
