Here is a good reason to get moving and off of the coach. Muscle tissue secretes chemicals called myokines. Myokines are very beneficial to your organs by telling the liver to increase the rate of oxidation-along with bones, the immune system and other muscles. There is also a harmone that is released during exercise that actually tricks white fat into becoming the type of fat that burns energy just as muscle does. So get moving and start burning fat. Your body and heart will reap the benefits from it! Talk with your Loveland Family Practice Doctor before starting any exercise program.
