Real studies, real benefits

Join KeyFitness now!There are numerous studies documenting the benefits of exercise for body and mind. Here are a few:

Diabetes

  • A recent study showed that people with diabetes who focused only on increasing their exercise levels had more significant improvements than those who focused on trying to change exercise, diet, and medication at the same time. (University of Missouri-Columbia).
  • Fighting obesity is well worth the effort—just 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity, coupled with a 5-10% reduction in body weight, produced a 58% reduction in diabetes. (Diabetes Prevention Program).
  • Hypertension/Stroke

  • Regular exercise helps keep arteries elastic (flexible), even in older people. This, in turn, ensures good blood flow and normal blood pressure. Sedentary people have a 35% greater risk of developing high blood pressure (New York Times, Mar’09).
  • Weight Control

  • Based on a comprehensive review of research spanning 1999 to 2009, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends moderate intensity physical activity of 150 minutes per week to prevent significant weight gain and reduce chronic disease factors associated with inactivity and being overweight (Longevity at Stanford).
