Wilmington Downtown Rotary Club

As a fellow Rotarian, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Downtown Rotary Club yesterday. It was so amazing to share fitness tips for others to living a better heart healthy life. One of my amazing clients, Joe Owen, is a member at the downtown Rotary Club and had invited me to be the guest speaker. It was such an honor! Bo Dean, another wonderful client and one of my best friends ended the session with such an inspirational story of his success through this journey.

When preparing my speech, it was even more shocking to me to come across some of the scary statistics our world has when it comes to cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Did you know that more than 2200 people in America die every single day of CVD? That is 1 death every 39 seconds. On top of that, 1 out of every 2.9 people die from CVD.

It is crazy to know this is the world we live in, but all it takes is baby steps to help you live a healthier life. There are 168 hours in a week, do you think you can find three hours to exercise? Most of us work 8+ hours a day to make our jobs successful, why can't we take three hours a week to make our health successful.

It doesn't take much, just small changes to our exercise and our nutrition to make a huge difference down the road. Don't try to do it all at once. You can make small changes ever so often and before too long, big changes will occur.

Here are some of the photos from the Rotary meeting...
