In the last few years, Health, Fitness and Wellness awareness has exploded. Everyday more and more people around the globe initiate some type of physical activity, which is outstanding since some physical activity is better than none. We here at Hype Fitness recommend at least 150 minutes of a moderate intensity a week. But again, some is better than none.
Now, the awesome thing about physical activity is the everyone can do it, from children to older adults. Everyone can benefit from a healthy lifestyle.
Here are some health benefits on children who practice regular physical activity:
- Superior body composition

- Reduced depression
And on adults we can find the following improvements with physical activity;
- Lower risk of stroke
- Lower risk of diabetes
- Lower risk of breast cancer
- Superior cardiorespiratory fitness

- and more...
It's a new era of fitness, in the older days people worked out to lose weight. Things have changed, now our duty as fitness professionals is to improve your lifestyle, and prevent health complications from happening. So with that said, please go out there and get HYPE!!
