OBESITY AND BREAST CANCER
HOW MAINTAINING A HEALTHY WEIGHT CAN SAVE YOU
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sunny Health and Fitness is promoting educating our community of a healthier lifestyle that may prevent many risks associated with obesity and breast cancer. Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women and many of us know someone - a mother, sister, or friend - who has been affected by this aggressive disease. Each year, it is estimated that over 246,000 women in the U.S will be diagnosed with breast cancer. However, maintaining a healthy weight makes a difference when it comes to breast cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, “[We] recommend that adults get at least 2 hours of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity each week (or a combination of these), preferably spread throughout the week”. Moderate activity is defined as anything that makes you breathe as hard as you do during a brisk walk.
Sunny Health and Fitness offers various products to help you achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle. For example, the P8700 offers all of the necessities for an amazing cardio workout that allows flexibility for any person trying to maintain their weight. You can also track your pulse, calories burned and time to keep you motivated and staying on track. Try out the Pink treadmill in honor of breast cancer awareness month.
For the month of October, Sunny Health and Fitness will be donating a small percentage of proceeds from our Pink Product line to Breast Cancer Research.
Sunny Health and Fitness wants to keep you motivated in your fitness journey while educating our customers about the risks and prevention of Breast Cancer. For information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle after coming out of breast cancer diagnosis: click here.
