Learn how to safely increase strength and flexibility, do core stability training on an exercise ball, correct your posture, prevent various pain syndromes and maintain a healthy body.

The clinicians at Bell Chiropractic will determine what exercises are appropriate for your specific injury or condition.

It has previously been recommended that the average person should perform a minimum of 20 minutes of aerobic exercise at least three times a week to maintain basic good health. However, if you are trying to improve your existing health or lose weight, 60 minutes of exercise a week is not adequate. In order to  achieve proper results it is recommended that you enjoy at least 30 – 40 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise at least  five times a week.

The key is to find healthy exercise activities that you enjoy and will not grow to regard as punishment. It is also advisable to alternate the activities from day to day. This not only helps to alleviate boredom but has also been proven to be a healthier routine. Different activities exercise your muscles differently. By alternating your routine, you will discover that you are not only losing weight faster, but you are also gaining strength and endurance quicker.
