The importance of staying active has been ingrained in our mind for as long as we can remember. We’ve been taught that regular exercise promotes our overall health; however, how many of us can trace this knowledge back to the source? Studies show that family - parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins - positively influence our level of physical activity. A few members of the Longevity community share their own family fitness dynamic and how movement, whether together or apart, has strengthened their bodies and parent-child relationships.
As our founder Jennie Brooks says, "you are only as healthy as your heart, your spine and your mind." The spine is the focal point of the body, and it's crucial for our whole health - both mental and physical - to care for it as such. Stabilizing and strengthening the muscles that support your core help fortify your spine and reinforce the rest of your body. Maria demonstrates 5 exercises that you can incorporate in your regular routine to promote spinal mobility and abdominal strengthening.
