Health conditions and exercise

Updated: May 6, 2023

Contrary to popular belief, many health conditions benefit from exercise, and this is a great way to start to take control of your own health. I've trained many professionals who have underlying health conditions including Asthma, back conditions, hypertension and diabetes type one and two.....

All have reported feeling fitter once they began fitness sessions. Many people do shy away from exercise believing they can't workout due to having a health condition. Many conditions are effectively managed and reversed with appropriate fitness training! A lot comes down to mis-information and lack of education generally.

Take hypertension for example, a very common health condition and many are on medication for this. Often a combination of medication and exercise are key to improving high blood pressure. Often once exercise begins it is possible that medication eventually gets reduced.

Exercise teaches you to utilise oxygen better, meaning more oxygen that you breathe in is used. Your lungs become more efficient and this has the tendency to help reduce blood pressure.

At Graham Fit Personal Training I cover various health conditions. Sessions are always appropriate to the individual and begin at your current level of fitness.

Whether at your home, outdoors or your workplace, why not get in touch and see how I can help you?
