Tip of the Week

Stair Climbing


Everyday physical activity such as walking and stair climbing is associated with health improvements over a period of time according to scientific evidence. Stair climbing is seen as a vigorous form of activity which increases your heartbeat and burns more calories than jogging. It is easy to include stair climbing into your daily life even if you have limited time as ten minutes of stair climbing is the same as 20 minutes jogging.

Did You Know?


Getting 8 hours of sleep each night will help you make better food choices and improve your fat metabolism.

So morning exercise is the best prescription for busy people.
