Benefits of Exercise
That Will Boggle Your Mind

knew all of the benefits of exercise. For eleven

Physical activity lowers the risk of colon and breast cancer.
Regular exercise delays bone loss and promotes bone formation.

others avoid my mistakes.
At the time I believed
I was too busy to exercise. My motto was "Anything
worth doing is worth putting off," and if I got the

Needless to say, this "near death experience"
got my attention... and in 1993 my wife and I opened the
Vital Life Center, an award winning
health and wellness club for the "over 50 crowd."

I thought I
knew the best exercise for weight loss, but
after trying Dr. Sears' new PACE® program, it was
soon apparent that there was more to learn.
PACE® exercise/weight loss routines are never more than 10 to 20 minutes
