Description

Good news! The benefits of exercise are even greater than you may think. Our exercise physiologist explains how targeted exercise can help prevent and even treat many medical conditions. This class has rotating content, so exercise your curiosity and keep checking in.

In this class, we’ll cover how cardiovascular fitness is an important component of heart health and overall fitness, and it contributes to healthy aging and longevity. Olympians have high VO2 max, but it may be even more valuable for average folks like the rest of us. Learn more about VO2 max, why it’s important for health, and ways of training to improve it.
