Physical fitness & Point of Care Testing:
- Managing Cholesterol with exercise:
High cholesterol, also known as dyslipidemia, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The good news is that cholesterol levels can be improved with a little Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC).
HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) helps to prevent our arteries from becoming blocked due to LDL (the bad cholesterol). High levels decrease your risk for a heart attack. Just 20-30 minutes of aerobic on most days of the week can jump-start your HDL in the right direction.
- Body Composition (%fat and %fat-free mass)
Body composition is a measurement of a person's fat mass and fat free (lean) mass.
Testing your body composition can be a great way to set, monitor and reach realistic health and fitness goals.
