Where personal attention leads to positive results

TIME: Even a little bit of this goes a long way

exercise-cover-finalDo you know what single thing can improve brain function, shrink fat cells, make you happier and help you age slower?

Wait for it….


I know. Right? Shocking.

Time magazine’s cover story this week includes these among seven key benefits that scientists are saying can now be linked to even a minimum level of physical exercise every week. Says Time: “New research is revealing that even small amounts of physical activity trigger dozens of beneficial changes in the body.”

Just imagine what Pilates is doing for you!

But here’s the bad news: “Only 20% of Americans get the recommended 150 minutes of strength and cardiovascular physical activity per week, more than half of all baby boomers report doing no exercise whatsoever, and 80.2 million Americans over age 6 are entirely inactive.”

Congratulations if you are taking care of yourself by exercising!

Read a nice summary of the Time article here.
