Physical activity and fitness are integral to mind and body well-being.  Physical activity supports your health in maintaining weight, blood pressure, reducing lipids, releasing stress, and improving mood and focus. Developing a sustainable, appealing plan that meets your needs and keeps you strong, flexible, balanced, and happy is ideal. There are many ways to enjoy physical activity and fitness such as: participate in group exercise classes, use the fitness center, swim in the pool, walk on the outdoor track, or work one-on-one with an exercise physiologist to help optimize your health and well-being.
