Dutrifitness – Give it a try!
Exercise is medicine for your brain, not just your body. Study after study is showing that even moderate exercise can turn back the clock on mental conditions, like depression and dementia, by helping the brain to stay plastic. The benefits of staying active are probably too many to number individually, but physical exercise has been shown to improve these key areas:
-Disease prevention (cancer, heart disease, hypertension….)
-Mobility and healing (strengthened muscles and joints reduce risk of bone loss and weakness caused by osteoporosis and aging…)
-Mental health (lessens risk of depression, dementia…)
-Psychosocial (mitigates the negative emotional effects of weight gain, chronic fatigue, insomnia…)
If simply moving around more can dramatically improve and even prolong your life, then why are so many people having trouble remaining active, especially after major life events like menopause, illness and retirement?
Dutrifitness came about because of my desire to show others how to integrate fitness and bodily awareness into a healthy lifestyle so they can live with vitality. Our purpose is to help you keep moving. Not just to maintain fitness ideals, but to promote health on a very functional, practical level so you can shovel snow, carry your own groceries, and keep up with your grandkids, no matter what your age or health history.
Many Dutrifitness clients keep going once they have reached these basic levels, because the body and mind like to feel good; in fact, they love it. Dutrifitness works for all fitness levels, from people recovering from illness who need to regain mobility, all the way to triathletes who are training to reach the pinnacle of their sport.
