Over the last year, a number of studies emerged that examined the effects of lasting fitness, particularly in children and the elderly. While we always knew that daily exercise was good for you, we now know that 30 minutes of exercise a day can decrease the likelihood of diseases like Alzheimer’s and keep various cancers at bay.

The many options for fitness trainers means that there is something for anyone who is interested in promoting good health. Personal trainers, group exercise instructors, and fitness directors will all benefit from the public’s awareness of maintaining a healthy body and lifestyle.
