  • The right combination of exercises to do at home or the gym may be difficult to figure out, which prompted the release of the Guide to Exercises. This is where you'll find information and video demonstrations developed to help you take control of your health
  • Exercise benefits your body in a significant number of ways, including reducing your risk of heart disease, insulin resistance and stress while improving your mood, cognitive performance, mitochondrial biogenesis, energy and self-esteem
  • Flexibility is often overlooked even though it is important to your overall health and performance. It helps maintain balance, reduce back pain and achieve a full range of motion.
