SEE for Yourself: Exercise Well

4.02.2012

SEE for yourself Myth and Fact Check: It is a common misperception that if people aren't sweating then they aren't working hard enough.  The reality is sweat is not the only indicator of a good workout session since sweat is only produced to cool the body.  A person can still burn calories, rev their metabolism and get the benefits of a good workout without leaving the gym drenched.  Want more myths and facts? Exercise your way to better health with PEEPs for a free SEE water bottle filled with info and goodies on the breezeway from 1:30-3pm today.

And if you think you needed motivation to workout, check out this funny commercial to see how some found theirs!





HKB Quit tip:  Exercise is crucial for health, especially when it comes to matters of the heart and lung health.  However, smoking can put a huge damper on one's ability to get a workout in.  Want a better workout, try cutting down on the cigarettes smoked. Start small- if you smoke about 12 a week, try cutting it down to 10 or whatever you think you can do.  Small changes can make a big impact.
