Heart Healthy – Bring A Friend!

Healthy Heart, Healthy You

According to heart.org, less than 30% of high school students perform enough physical activity to keep their hearts healthy.


Less than 30 percent. Sadly, there are so few people taking advantage of the simple steps you can take to help your heart.


The American Heart Association recommends at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity daily. In honor of American Heart Month, here are a few simple, practical and beneficial things you can do to get your heart healthy – and keep it that way.


Eat a heart healthy diet. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, along with whole grains, is just what the doctor ordered. Increasing foods that are good for you, while simultaneously decreasing your intake of sugary drinks, sodium and saturated fats, paves a path to keep your heart happy.


Maintain a healthy weight. Eating foods that are good for you not only keeps your heart happy, but your waistline too. Keeping your weight at a level that’s healthy for you is about so much more than looking good. It’s about feeling good, and truly being in good shape. Which leads to another way you can help your heart.


Physical activity. This is where Tae Kwon Do comes in. In addition to being an activity that’s fun and engaging, it offers an excellent workout. Tae Kwon Do gets your entire body moving, from head to toe.


These simple but powerful tips, along with healthy levels for your cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, can go a long way to helping you live a long and healthy life.


Head over to Master Shim’s and get signed up for one of the most exciting workout regiments around. Your heart will thank you for it.


And it’s not too late to take advantage of this week’s Special Friend Classes, April 30th-May 5th!
