Weekly Workout Challenge: November 18, 2016

It's Friday! And you know what that means? Time for another Weekly Workout Challenge. This has become one of my favourite posts to make. I should have started this series so much sooner! I hope you like it as much as I do. And if not, well too bad... it's here to stay friends. Because total health is definitely way more than just what we put into our bodies. Moving your body regularly is also so important. And the sad fact is that most North Americans aren't moving nearly enough. We have become such a sedentary society and it breaks my heart to see the number of patients that I do everyday whose health could be made so much better by making just a few lifestyle adjustments, with regular exercise being just one of those factors. Besides weight loss, regular exercise has so many health benefits including decreasing chronic pain, increasing energy, improving sleep, decreasing depression and anxiety, decreasing heart disease and diabetes etc. etc. The list is endless really.

So please join me in this week's Weekly Workout Challenge to start improving your health- one workout at a time!
