30 minutes of Strength Training & Cardio a day can boost your overall health
Over the years, exercise has been proven to be beneficial for health and longevity. However information on women’s health and fitnessis scarce. Recent research by the European Society of Cardiology found that women who exercise are at significantly lower risk of dying from heart disease, cancer and other causes. Most of the study participants were middle-aged or older women: the average age was 64, and 80% were between 50 and 75.
The research found that cardiovascular disease’s annual death rate was nearly four times higher in women with poor, compared to good, exercise capacity (2.2% versus 0.6%). Keeping active can be challenging, especially when women live busy lives between work and childcare obligations. However, staying strong, healthy and fit doesn’t have to be a tedious chore.
There are so many ways to keep active nowadays. Apps, gyms, groups but not all of these are tailored to women. But places like Curves are dedicated exclusively to women’s fitness. Curves clubs are for women only, which means women can train, sweat, and have fun in an all-female environment. The Curves programme is designed with women in mind combining cardio and strength training and packaging it in an attractive 30min daily workout: no heavy weight lifting, no drama.
Cardio and strength training is good for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system. It is also beneficial to fight stress, boost your metabolism and keep depression at bay.
