It’s Not About BMI Anymore

Posted by JCC Pittsburgh on June 18, 2015

All the research now shows that the biggest health risk is belly fat. To keep risk low, experts say a measurement of under 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men is best. Research has found that women who have waists over 37 inches have an 80% higher risk of various conditions, including heart disease and cancer. Scary, right?

The best way to keep your number in check: Regular exercise- ideally, 45 minutes of vigorous  aerobic activity… Group Active, Spinning, Group Kick, Zumba 3 times a week, and three 15-20 minutes sessions of resistance training (like Group Power!)
You get the idea, right? JUST GET MOVING!
