It’s not a fad or a trend. It’s a lifestyle. Healthy living is about eating nutritious foods, maintaining an active lifestyle physically and mentally, and exercising regularly. Don’t get swallowed by the most popular diets or exercise regimes. Eat the foods you enjoy sensibly but incorporate a fitness training program in your life to help balance your healthy eating habits. Do the proper exercise routine for your body and embrace your healthy lifestyle.
The health benefits are clear when it comes to exercise. Lower risk in heart diseases and other severe illnesses, scientifically-proven boost in happiness, and suitable weight range are some of the advantages of taking up exercise. One good way to help you lead a regular exercise program is with a help of a personal trainer or fitness instructor. Not only will you develop the habit of exercising, but the individual attention will personalize what you and your body need. This profession is seeing a growth spurt as many people realize the importance of good health through exercise.
Centennial College realized the potential success of a career in fitness so it developed the Fitness and Health Promotion (9320) program to attract students wishing to learn more about fitness and build a career on this exciting health initiative.
