Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy. People who are active live longer and feel better. Exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight. It can delay or prevent diabetes, some cancers and heart problems.
Most adults need at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days per week. The key is to find the right exercise for you. If it is fun, you are more likely to stay motivated. You may want to walk with a friend, join a class or consider joining a gym.
The difficulty of finding the right equipment, a convenient work-out location, the time, or the money are all common reasons for avoiding exercise. Fortunately for Buffalo State’s faculty and staff who want to be healthier, stronger, or trimmer, the Fitness Center is the answer. Buffalo State’s Fitness Center includes high performance exercise equipment, consisting of the latest in cardiovascular and strength training technology. There are 45 exercise stations plus 25 pieces of cardio equipment. For more information, please e-mail Nick DeMarsh or call 878-3816.
