Exercise Right Week 23 – 29 May 2022
Exercise Right Week (23-29 May), promoted annually by Exercise & Sports Science Australia, is all about inspiring people to live happier and healthier lives by empowering them through exercise. It also celebrates the Accredited Exercise Physiologist and their mission in empowering people to exercise right for who they are and their condition.
Exercise shouldn’t be a punishment, it should be FUN! We want to change the dialog around exercise to shift it from merely a weight loss tool to something that makes you feel good, physically and mentally. Moonee Valley Health and Fitness is proud to be involved in the campaign for change!
During Exercise Right Week, why not start talking to your patients and clients about exercise and how its prescription, in many cases, can be more beneficial than the prescription of medication to prevent and treat chronic conditions.
Despite knowing exercise is good for us, half of all Aussie adults aren’t moving enough. A lot of the dialog around exercise turns it into a chore or punishment, creating a negative relationship between our minds and movement. We want to change that.
It’s not about weight loss. It’s not a punishment. Exercise is a celebration of your body. We’re designed to move!
This Exercise Right Week, we want to highlight some of the incredible physical, mental and social benefits of exercise (that have NOTHING to do with the number on the scale!).
Exercise has been shown to have a positive effect on common chronic diseases including blood pressure, cholesterol, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain. It is also the cheapest and most accessible medicine available.
