Here are some tips to make exercise something you can't wait to do:

Last Monday, I woke at 5:00 am so that I could drive a friend to South Miami Hospital(SMH) for a 6:30 am surgery. After about 45 minutes in Pre-Op I was told that I could leave. Bleary- eyed and light-headed, I knew I needed food. Down to the cafeteria I went and had a high protein breakfast. I immediately felt better.

Fitness is one of the greatest things you can do for your health. Exercise can help you lose or maintain your optimal weight, improve balance, coordination, flexibility, muscle mass, aerobic capacity and even bone density. It can also reduce the risk of chronic diseases like COPD and diabetes.
