Here are some common questions and answers we receive about our services and the general importance of exercise. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact us at or through our contact form.
Why are diet and exercise important to my health?
In Vermont, a combination of physical inactivity and poor diet is the second leading cause of preventable death. It contributes to a wide range of chronic diseases that can impact a person’s overall well-being and ability to live a full life. In fact, recent national surveys indicate that this combination may surpass tobacco use as the leading cause of preventable death.
How can exercise address my current health concerns?
Exercise is credited as the key to prevention and treatment of chronic diseases including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and even cancer. These conditions have significant emotional, physical and even financial impact on those who suffer from them. Physical activity, particularly weight-bearing exercise, is also a primary prevention and treatment strategy for osteoporosis, and is an important part of recovery after an acute injury.
