BioExercise is a new exercise program that combines activities for the body and mind to improve total body functionality. It helps participants address the physical and mental needs of their bodies as they age. The result: improved physical and cognitive health.
Advancing technology and urbanization has created millions of desk jobs and long commutes, entailing longer hours sitting. Although technology makes things easier, the results are causing people to think and move less. In fact, the ease of technology has enabled us to become so “connected” that we have actually become dangerously “disconnected” from our minds and bodies.
With age you expect physical changes to vision, hearing and muscle tone. But, thankfully an active lifestyle can help slow physical changes and improve muscle strength, bone density and balance (even at an older age). Did you know … the brain, like the rest of the body needs to be worked? Just like physical exercise is designed to strengthen the heart and muscles, use of mental exercises helps maintain a fit and flexible mind.
