It was once believed that exercise was simply a means to an end…to lose weight. But studies have shown that the benefits of staying fit and active go well beyond simple weight loss. Physical activity and regular exercise have proven to decrease the risk of heart disease, and can also decrease your risk of stroke, colon cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. If the overall health benefits weren’t enough, living an active healthy lifestyle at every age, helps increase energy and even helps increase the overall happiness in your life. Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to be the thing you dread doing each day. The key to a successful fitness regime is finding something that you love. Some find running a peaceful escape from a hectic day; others take to cycling to get to work or just for fun; and many use walking groups to catch up with friends and enjoy the night. The NSGA is dedicated to helping all individuals get fit. Our goal is to help you get going and Keep Going! We will be posting fitness programs, articles and tips here on our site. Please check back often to get the latest updates!
